Recently, Warren police have been called to several cases involving women and their children being held at gunpoint. However, in the previous incidents, the women claimed they did not know their assailants.
On May 11, a 23-year-old Brier Street S.E. woman was robbed by two masked gunmen in front of her two young children. The woman told police the men entered her residence through a side door about 6 p.m., according to a Warren police report. She told police that the men held her, her 4-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter at gunpoint. The men took two Xbox 360 video game systems and $1,000 cash, the police report stated.
An April 25, on the other side of the city, three masked gunmen held a woman and her children at gunpoint during a home invasion on Clearwater Street N.W. According to police, the men kicked down a door and demanded money from the woman just after midnight. Five children were at home at the time, and the men took the woman's cell phone, according to reports.
No arrests have been made in these cases, and police have not said if they believe they are connected.
