Police have solid leads in bike trail attack

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Warren police believe they know who beat and robbed a 14-year-old boy of his clothes and cellphone but have not made any arrests yet.

Police said they think two adults and a juvenile are responsible for the Monday attack on Greg Snyder, 14, of Warren, while he walked on a bike trail near High Street and Charles Avenue on city’s northeast side.

Police said while the attack happened on the bike trail, they stress that this is an isolated case, since the boy knew his attackers.

Councilman John Brown said he has not heard of too many people complaining about safety on the trail.

“I think it is a positive and the more use that it gets, the more there will not by any type of problem,” said Warren Councilman John Brown. “Because it happens on the bike trail it is big news. If there is an incident on a city street, nobody thinks about it.”

In October, Nicholas Baldwin, 27, of Mineral Ridge, was attacked on a Saturday afternoon on the Warren bike trail.

Two men started throwing rocks at him as he approached the bridge near Woodland and Railroad Streets.

Nicholas was knocked off his bike and beaten by the two suspects. A motorist in the area saw him lying on the ground and stopped to help.

No suspects have been arrested.
