Police arrest three suspects in rash of Youngstown robberies

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Detectives have arrested three people in connection with four incidents of aggravated robbery on Friday.

Police arrested 19-year-old Joseph S. Mascarella and two 16-year-old juveniles at a West Midlothian Boulevard address.

The group targeted small commercial businesses, mainly fast food restaurants.

Police found evidence linking the suspects to robberies at the Burger King and Subway Restaurants on Midlothian Boulevard, and Family Dollar and Taco Bell on Market Street.

According to a release, one of the clerks said they heard a "click" when the suspect was holding a gun to their head, as if the weapon misfired.

Surveillance video captured the suspects, who covered the bottom half of their faces in an attempt to shield their identity.

The surveillance images were released to the public for assistance leading to any information, which ultimately led them to the suspects.

The investigation is still ongoing. Police are asking anyone with information about the robberies or the suspects to call Youngstown Police at (330) 747-7911 or Crime Stoppers at  (330) 746-CLUE.
