Apparent home invasion in Warren

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren man was shocked to find a stabbing victim, bleeding on his porch, following an apparent nearby home invasion Wednesday afternoon.

Police were called to a home in the 2000 block of W. Market Street around 4:30 p.m. for a report of a burglary involving a gun.

A police report listed two victims with what appeared to be minor injuries — 21-year-old Timothy Cleveland and 23-year-old Jamil Austin.

Police are still trying to piece together exactly what happened.

Wednesday, one of the victims ran and collapsed on Walter Jackson’s back porch on Vermont Avenue NW.

“I was sitting in the house, watching TV — commotion, my dogs went nuts,” Jackson said. “I went to look out the side door, there was nothing there. When I come back into my house, I heard commotion on my back porch. I opened the door and there was a gentleman laying there, bleeding pretty bad.”

He called 911, begging for emergency responders to come immediately.

911 call: “He’s bleeding like crazy”

“Then I went in, grabbed towels and just from watching stuff on TV, seeing what they did, then figured that’s what I needed to do,” Jackson said.

The victims were rushed to the hospital.

Police are still looking for one person they believe to be involved.

While he’s still shaken up, neighbors who live across from the home on W. Market said it’s too close for comfort.

“I honestly don’t know how to feel, I don’t. It’s just crazy,” Ashley Hughes said.

Warren Police Lt. Jeff Cole said he wants community members to know that officers have a presence in the area.

“We are out here, working hard to actively investigate the crimes of the City of Warren.”

This story is corrected to show that the home invasion happened on W. Market Street, not Vermont Avenue.
