WARREN - Police arrested three men Thursday morning after a man claimed he was robbed of $200 in the parking lot of a North Park Avenue grocery store.
Damion Coleman, 33, 1053 Homewood Ave. S.E.; Ryan Allen, 26, 249 Atlantic St. N.W.; and Shane White, 30, 201 Royal Mall, Niles, each were arraigned in Municipal Court Friday on a charge of robbery. Colemen and Allen each also had an arrest warrant.
All three pleaded not guilty at their arraignments. They have preliminary hearings Friday.
A 23-year-old Orchard Avenue S.E. man told police he was in the parking lot of Save A Lot, 1020 N. Park Ave., about 11:30 a.m. Thursday when White demanded money from him and placed his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun.
White then ran to a car parked in the lot and rode away, the report states.
The victim said he followed the car while talking to police on a cell phone. Police found the car at a home in the 1300 block of Meadowbrook Avenue S.E. and saw three men getting out of that car and into another one, a police report states.
Police searched the first car and found $100 in a cigar box in the front seat and another $100 inside Allen's shoes, reports state.
Police drove the victim to the home, where he identified all three men, reports state.
