Warren resident accused of striking pedestrian

Armonte L. North faces several charges, including felonious assault

WARREN — A man accused of purposely hitting another man with a vehicle was arraigned Friday in Warren Municipal Court.

Armonte L. North, 22, 129 Elm Road Apartment A, is facing a charge of felonious assault as well as traffic charges of driving under suspension, disregard of safety, and expired or unlawful license plates.

North was driving a black vehicle on Kenilworth Avenue when he swerved toward a driveway in the 600 block and struck a man that he knew, according to a Warren police report.

The report states that North had been having a dispute with another person who was at the house when the incident occurred.

The hood and windshield of the car were heavily damaged and showed evidence that the person who was struck had rolled over the entire vehicle. The victim, a 39-year-old Warren man, was taken to a hospital for treatment of suspected serious injuries.

Judge Thomas P. Gysegem ordered North to have no contact with the victim.

North is being held in the Trumbull County jail with a hold for a parole violation.

Last year, North was sentenced to do jail time at Lorain Correctional Institution after pleading guilty to burglary and retaliation, both felonies. The charges stem from an April 2020 incident, court records show.

North also was sentenced to more jail time while already at the Trumbull County jail last year after he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault connected to a Christmas Eve 2020 incident where he struck a county corrections officer, according to reports.
