Sigh.

My fiancee works at Parmatown and is looking to get a job where I live and get the hell out of Cleveland. This makes me doubly nervous for her since I have seen what passes for humanity hanging out at Parmatown - a sad shadow of its former self. This almost lifelong Clevelander is so glad to not be living there anymore but it breaks my heart to see not only the city I've known for 40 years but the suburbs as well, being given over to barbarism. Gary Dee was right so many years ago - put a big chain link fence around the hood - but now the hood is spreading everywhere.

Parmatown has gone the way of Randall Park Mall. Sigh.

Parmatown has declined so much they need to level it and make it a outdoor mall similar to Westgate with normal stores. With the schools in trouble and now this we cant sell our homes- guess we could rent them out....something needs to change! Good families are leaving and now in record numbers!

I stay away from that mall. Too many “No Guns Allowed “ signs. I stay away from any place that strips me of my right to self defense.

Maybe they should put up Do Not Rob signs. Gun free zones are nothing but feel good BS.

If your are relatively sane and law abiding. Get your training, get your Concealed Handgun License, and take some responsibility for your own safety and security.

Lazy uneducated punks , Real tough guys...I stopped going there 30 years ago because of the high school a@@holes. Seems like nothing has changed. Maybe these pieces of trash will wake up when this stuff happens to their mama or sista

I hope this thug has fun wearing the stuff from victorias secret,because he sure didn't get much else.That would be funny if he got cought and when he got to prison they asked him "hey,what you in for?" Man,I robbed a woman of $2.50 and her underwear.

Why no physical description of the assailant? How can you expect people to keep an eye out for this guy without the description? What is the point of deliberately leaving his physical description out of the story?

no description maybe because then they'd be accused of profiling.
I agree Ohio has to start letting people licenced to conceal carry. These are people that are honest and law abiding or they aren't allowed t get the license. In states surrounding OHIO where people are allowed the crooks know that the average citizen just MIGHT be a gun carrier and the biggest fear of a cowardly crook is getting shot dead. So what do they do they drive over to OHIO and do their little crime.

Remember the murder of Mary Jo Pesho at the same mall at this same time in 1996.

Chapel Hill Mall in Akron is deteriorating rapidly too. Nothing but ghetto trash (black and white) hanging out there. Pretty soon there won't be a decent place to go shopping.

I think Summit Mall is still okay enough for decent folks. I tend to prefer Kohl's, as their free standing stores, don't seem to attract the dangerous types with pants hanging down to their knees and LeBron tattoos.

It doesn't matter whether your in the suburbs or not. Crime happens everywhere. The only difference is that when crimes happen in suburbs, they try to keep it on the down-low when it happens in the suburbs and it doesn't get that much media attention. Who ever done it needs to get a damn job. I know we're in a recession, but if my broke behind was able to get a job, so can he.
