Warren 2-year-old held at knife point by masked suspects

Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Warren father says he was held at gunpoint and his young daughter was held at knife point by intruders.

The aggravated robbery took place at around 9 p.m. Monday night on Jefferson Street SW in Warren. 

The man says he arrived home with his two-year old daughter when he was struck in the back of his head by an unknown object while trying to unlock his side door.

The victim told police that two males wearing ski masks ordered him into his kitchen and demanded to know where he kept prescription painkillers.

He told them the only medication he had was for a kidney ailment. That's when the victim alleges the suspects grabbed his daughter from him along with a kitchen steak knife and held it to her throat threatening to "kill her" if he did not give up the drugs.

When the resident denied to know of the location of the drugs for a second time, he says was then taken to each room inside his home at gunpoint where the suspects ransacked the rooms looking for drugs.

When he was ordered to go to the bathroom, he took his daughter with him to attempt to conceal her from the suspects.

Shortly after, he told police he heard the back door to his home slam and knew the suspects must have left his house.

He then immediately took his daughter back to Pennsylvania and then filed a report with Warren police.

Neither the man or his daughter required any medical attention.  The man said he didn't have a phone and that's why he didn't immediately contact police.
