Warren couple reports stabbing after attempted home intrusion
A Warren woman tells police she was stabbed after repelling four would-be intruders who tried to force their way into her Northwest Side home while she was watching her grandchildren Friday night.
The 39-year-old woman told officers that she was with her four grandchildren at her Clearwater St. NW home when the suspects forced their way into the home. The woman said she managed to push them out and lock the front door before calling her 60-year-old husband.
The husband arrived just as the four suspects came back to the home in a Chevy Impala, according to the report.
The woman said a man with a gun got out of the Impala and threatened to shoot her but got back into the car and began to drive away.
The couple says they chased the car to the intersection of Clearwater and Commerce Street where a fight broke out.
Both victims received superficial stab wounds during the fight, according to police.
The husband says the Impala drove toward him at about 40 miles per hour, launching him off the hood and onto the pavement before driving away.
The male victim was taken to Trumbull Regional Medica Center for treatment of lacerations and internal injuries. His wife refused to go to the hospital.
Police searched the area but did not find the Impala or the suspects.
The police report does not list a possible motive for the incident.
