Warren laundromat employee robbed


WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Warren police are investigating the armed robbery of a laundromat worker.

Police were called to the Wash Well Laundromat on North River Road just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. Police said the employee was getting into her car in order to take the deposit to the bank when three men in a black and dark purple Chevy Blazer pulled up behind her and demanded the money at gunpoint.

The men got away with nearly $1,600 in cash.

It was the fourth armed robbery in Warren in the past three weeks.

Police were called about 11 p.m. April 21 to the Little Caesar’s Pizza on Youngstown Road. According to police reports, the suspect walked into the store, held employees at gunpoint and demanded cash. He fled soon after with $200.

On April 15, police were called to the Quick Stop Food Store on North Road after two men allegedly held up patrons and the store clerk at gunpoint. Witnesses said the men were wearing hoodies and bandanas.

A similar robbery took place the week before at the Convenient Food Mart on Elm Road. One of the men in that robbery grabbed $600 from the cash register and another man loaded up on cigars.
