Two men indicted in West Side robbery
YOUNGSTOWN - Two men reportedly caught in the act of robbing a West Side convenience store last week were indicted Thursday by a Mahoning County grand jury.
Timothy Fulton, 38, and Charles Bulatko, 20, were indicted on charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and two counts of having weapons while under disability. They both remain at the Mahoning County Jail pending their arraignments today, according to Tribune Chronicle news partner WYTV 33 News.
The men were arrested early Friday after police said they nearly crashed into a tree at Mill Creek Park. When Mill Creek Park police made the traffic stop, they found pills, marijuana and a gun inside the vehicle, according to a police report.
The gun matched the description of one used earlier in the evening to threaten a woman and one that was used to rob the Schenley Carry-Out store on Mahoning Avenue, police said.
