Man reports stabbing after answering door
WARREN - A Phillips Drive man told police he was stabbed in the face early Tuesday morning after answering his door to two men he did not know.
William H. Hill, 41, suffered an apparent minor injury and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, according to a Warren police report.
Hill told police two men knocked on his back door just after 1 a.m., and when he went to answer it, one of them stabbed him in the left lower jaw area, the report states. Reports state the men then ran off in a northern direction.

Two-year-old's drowning ruled as accidental
WEATHERSFIELD - No criminal charges will be filed in connection with last month's drowning of a 2-year-old Hubbard girl who stopped by her grandparents' home on Emerson Avenue, according to an opinion from the Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office.
Police turned their investigation over to prosecutors, who looked into the death of Marina N. Baugher, who died in St. Joseph Health Center July 6 after she was found unresponsive in her grandparents' swimming pool by her mother, Maria A. Reynolds of Morningside Drive.
The Trumbull County coroner ruled the death an accidental drowning after mother and daughter went to retrieve something at the house while the grandparents were away.
Commissioners consider Kinsman note renewal
WARREN - Trumbull County commissioners, who on Monday approved advertising for bids for a $10 million sewer project in Kinsman, are today likely to approve renewing a note that's been used to pay for a portion of the project.
A large chunk of the $653,000 note has been spent on engineering, and some of the remainder has been spent on tree removal, easement purchase and appraisal and administration related to that project that when complete, will replace broken or faulty septic systems with sewers in a part of Kinsman.
The money will be reimbursed to Trumbull County from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Ohio Public Works Commission.
Construction is expected to begin in October and last about one year.
The project will provide sanitary sewer for about 350 homes and businesses in an area that was identified in 2007 as a potential health risk because of the malfunctioning and nonworking septic systems.
