Violent weekend in Warren
WARREN – A city man accused of trying to break into a Peace Street home early Sunday morning while the resident was inside was being held without bond Monday at the Trumbull County Jail.
The incident is one of several police reported that kept them busy over the weekend. They also responded to reports of a stabbing, a home invasion and a robbery at gunpoint at a local bar.
Police charged Jamil Lowe, 19, of Atlantic Street N.E., with attempted aggravated burglary and carrying a concealed weapon. He made an initial court appearance Monday morning and has a preliminary hearing set for 2 p.m. July 15 in Warren Municipal Court.
Police said they responded to the Peace Street residence after receiving a report of a possible burglary in progress.
They said a 22-year-old woman told them she was sitting in the living room about 1:45 a.m. when she heard someone trying to open the back door. She said she jumped up, yelled out and ran to get her phone, according to a Warren police report. The report states that as she was calling police someone tried to open her front door. She said she yelled out to them to hold on and that she needed to get dressed, the report states. The woman told police that when she looked through the peephole she saw a man wearing sunglasses and a white T-shirt with a red bandanna pulled up over his face. She told police a second male had a stocking hat and hoodie. The males told her they were sent there by another man to get his wallet, the report states.
The woman told police the males had no reason to be at her home, and she felt they were trying to break in and she wanted them arrested.
Police took the two males into custody. A 17-year-old Ogden Avenue male was also charged in connection with the incident.
Lowe dropped a loaded handgun in the back of a cruiser as he was being transported to jail, resulting in the weapons charge, according to reports.
In a separate incident about 2 a.m., a gunman made off with $753 when he robbed the Central Social Club, 1171 W. Market St. The man walked in the bar, showed a silver hand gun and demanded money, according to reports.
About an hour prior to that in a separate case, a 32-year-old woman told police someone broke into her home through her son’s window and stole a laptop computer and iPad from two adjacent rooms. The woman was sleeping in a nearby room.
Police also investigated a stabbing early Saturday morning.
According to reports, a 23-year-old woman told police that she and another women got into a fight outside after leaving a bar about 2:30 a.m. The woman told police she and a man she did not know left the bar and two women followed them. She said one of the women started arguing with her outside her Roberts Avenue apartment and that the the other woman took out a steak knife and stabbed her in the hand.
Reports say the woman suffered a minor injury and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
