Several Teens Attacked a Woman As She Called 911 to Report a Fight

Several Teens Attacked a Woman As She Called 911 to Report a Fight

ohio newsAKRON, Ohio — Investigators are searching for several teens who attacked a woman as she called 911 to report a fight she recorded with her cellphone.

 

The teens attacked the 27-year-old woman as she took video of a fight about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Hardesty Park on Wallhaven Circle, police said in a news release.

 

No arrests have been made in the case.

 

The woman sat in her car as she called 911 to report a “brawl” involving approximately 20 teens, according to a recording of the call released Friday afternoon.

 

“I just told them that the cops are coming,” the woman said in the 911 call. “Now they’re all running.”

 

The woman opened her car door to confront them, but they grabbed the door and pulled it open. The woman got out of the car, and several boys assaulted her while a girl took her cellphone, police said.

 

Most of the teens ran away, but several walked over to the woman’s car and began to kick it, police said. The woman yelled at the teens and told them she had a video of their antics.

 

The 911 call becomes muffled as the scuffled occurs. Eventually, a boy can be heard in the recording yelling “let’s go.” They ran away before officers arrived at the park.

 

The woman suffered minor injuries in the attack, police said. She refused medical treatment but later went to a hospital.

 

Anyone with information about the teens is asked to call the Akron Police Department’s detective bureau at 330-375-2490.

RTA Route Changes Taking Place in Cleveland with a Little Warning

RTA Route Changes Taking Place in Cleveland with a Little Warning

Cleveland RTACLEVELAND, Ohio — Starting Sunday, some RTA bus riders will be taking a different route to get to downtown Cleveland.

 

RTA announced changes to some bus routes, but some Cleveland city council members are not pleased about the permanent detours.

 

The signs are already posted, informing RTA passengers that starting Sunday, March 11, the No. 14 and No. 15 buses will be traveling a different route through downtown.

 

“RTA made an announcement today with no warning. This was supposed to go into effect on Sunday, five days from now. There’s been no warning, no opportunity for public comment, no opportunity for RTA to hear from the riders,” said Ward 5 Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland.

 

Councilwoman Cleveland, who heads the council’s transportation committee, said she believes the changes will adversely affect many people on Cleveland’s southeast side.

 

Currently, those bus routes take riders from Kinsman and Harvard avenues to downtown on Prospect Avenue but starting Sunday, the buses will avoid Prospect altogether.

 

“You’re re-routing from Chester to Superior, taking people far away from their destinations,” Cleveland said.

 

An RTA spokeswoman told the changes are designed to relieve congestion downtown.

 

In a statement, she said, “RTA is trying to address concerns expressed by our customers due to slow traffic flows on Prospect. The problem is worse on game days. A customer could be waiting as far down the road Tri-C east and not know their bus in stuck in traffic on Prospect. RTA is always trying to improve reliability and on-time performance of our service.”

 

“Of course, game day, we have a lot of activities, we’re a busy city now. That will happen, but you’ve got to find a way to balance that with the needs of people to get to where they need to go to,” Cleveland said.

 

Councilwoman Cleveland said some of her constituents currently have a tough time getting downtown and she believes this will make it tougher.

 

“I represent a lot of people who have low income, who are in public housing and fixed incomes. It’s an inconvenience for them to get to work, to get to the doctor’s appointments, to their children’s school or wherever they have to go,” said the councilwoman.

 

Cleveland City Council meets Wednesday morning and the new RTA routes will be one of the topics of discussion. Councilwoman Cleveland does say the city has a good working relationship with RTA and she hopes to begin resolving some of her issues on Wednesday.

A 17-year-old Girl Taken to Hospital After Cleveland Collinwood Shooting

Cleveland ShootingCLEVELAND, Ohio — A 17-year-old girl is in critical condition after someone shot her in the back as she rode in a car in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood, police say.

The shooting happened about 11:45 p.m. Thursday on Westropp Avenue, between East 143rd and East 146th streets, according to police. No arrests have been made in the shooting.

The girl was in the front passenger seat of a 2012 Volkswagen Passat with a 21-year-old man in the driver’s seat when the shooting happened, police reports say.

The man and the girl were hanging out with another woman at a house on Westropp Avenue. The three of them went to a nearby gas station and returned to the home, police said.

The woman got out of the car and went inside the house, police reports say. The other two stayed in the car, and another car with its high beams on pulled up behind them, according to police.

Police reports say, the 17-year-old got out of the car, then got back inside. A gunman from the car parked behind them got out and fired about 14 shots at the car, according to police.

The man was unharmed, but a bullet struck the girl, according to police. Police said a total of six bullets hit the side of the car and others shattered all four side windows.

The man sped off and the gunman’s car followed for a short time before it headed in a different direction, police said. The man stopped his car in front of the Blue Breeze Bar on Lakeshore Boulevard and East 169th Street because he saw someone standing outside the bar, police said.

The man standing in front of the bar called 911. According to police reports, the girl was not breathing when police arrived. The officers gave her CPR until the ambulance arrived and took her to University Hospitals, police said.
