Assaults reported to police in Warren
WARREN A city teen told police he was jumped and pistol-whipped at Deerfield Avenue and Sixth Street as he was walking home from a convenience store early Sunday evening.
The incident was among several – including a Friday afternoon shooting – involving Warren teens reported to police over the past several days.
A Deerfield Avenue woman told police her 17-year-old was robbed at gunpoint. The teen, who suffered a cut on his head, was taken to St. Joseph Hospital by family members where he was treated at the hospital’s urgent care unit, according to a Warren police report.
It was not clear how severely he was hurt.
Reports state that he was walking home about 6 p.m. when he was attacked from behind. The boy told police someone pistol-whipped him with a gun in the back of the head and took $300 from him, the police report states.
On Friday, police were called to the area of Landsdowne Avenue and Williamsburg Boulevard N.W. in response to reports of gunshots being fired around 5 p.m. While there, police located three shell casings, according to police reports. Reports state that police located a victim, Marcus Williams, 19, of Northwest Boulevard, at Trumbull Memorial Hospital.
A police report indicates Williams suffered “other major injury.” However, police provided no other information and it was not clear how seriously he was hurt. An update on his condition was not available.
On Saturday, a 16-year-old was cut in the chest during an incident in the 100 block of Logan Avenue S.E. just before 5 p.m.
According to a police report, officers responded to an known disturbance and were advised there was a male at the scene with a knife. Police said when they arrived they found a male suspect with a chest wound, the report states. The report, which indicates police are investigating the incident as a burglary, states police later found the male who had the knife. The police report states that after officers investigated the incident further they advised both males “of their pending charges” and current police action.
The male who had the knife was transported from the scene by a family member “to prevent further incident,” the report states. The police report indicates the 16-year-old and a 39-year-old male each suffered “apparent minor injury.”
