Youngstown woman charged with violent crime spree

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown woman accused of taking part in violent crimes is named in a secret indictment charging her with attempted murder, felonious assault and arson.

The charges are included in a ten count indictment handed up against 27-year-old Nahdia Baker.

According to police reports, Baker pulled her car up to an address on Imperial Street on May 24, when a man jumped out of the back seat and fired shots at Anthony West.

West ran away.  Police found bullet holes in two vehicles and the home.  A woman who was inside the home with three children wasn't injured. Officers found 16 shell casings at the crime scene.

That same day, prosecutors say Baker set fire to a home and a car on Matta Avenue.
