YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police are investigating a felonious assault after a man told them he was attacked while sweeping the lot at a gas station on Market Street.

Officers were called about 2:43 a.m. Wednesday to the Shell station where a clerk told them that a man tried to hit him with his car. He said while he was confronting that man, another man showed up and punched him in the back of the head yelling, “Stay away from my cousin!”
