   A robbery near Belleville in which the victim was pistol whipped is prompting a warning from Metro-east authorities about the dangers of online sales.  

   St. Clair County Sheriff Richard Watson says a woman and her boyfriend were robbed at gun point in the parking lot of the Bradford Place Apartments.  They were lured there by someone who'd advertised an iPhone for sale on Craigslist.  

   Two teens, one with a gun, stole the couple's cash and a cell phone.  One of the teens struck the woman in the head with a handgun.  

   One of the suspects is identified as 17 yr. old Trevon Yates of East St. Louis.  The other is a juvenile, identified only as a 16 yr. old male. Both teens are now in custody and facing felony charges. 

   Sheriff Watson is reminding the public to use extreme caution when buying and selling things online and only meet strangers in a well-lit, public place.    

 

AP Interview: Putin warns West on Syria action

Wednesday, 04 September 2013 03:16 Published in National News

   NOVO-OGARYOVO, Russia (AP) - President Vladimir Putin has warned the West against taking one-sided action in Syria, but says Russia "doesn't exclude" supporting a U.N. resolution on punitive military strikes if it is proved that Damascus used poison gas on its own people.

   Putin spoke in a wide-ranging interview to The Associated Press and Russia's state Channel 1 television late Tuesday at his residence outside Moscow.

   It was the only one he granted prior to the summit of G-20 nations in St. Petersburg, which opens Thursday.

   The summit was supposed to concentrate on the global economy but now looks likely to be dominated by the international crisis over the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria's civil war.

   Putin expressed hope that he and President Barack Obama would have serious discussions in St. Petersburg.

Ohio man who held 3 women captive commits suicide

Tuesday, 03 September 2013 23:35 Published in National News

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio corrections officials say Ariel Castro who held three women captive in his home for nearly a decade has committed suicide at a state prison facility.

   Spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says 53 year old Castro was found hanging in his cell around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient. Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

   The three women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. They escaped May 6, when one of the women broke part of a door and yelled to neighbors for help. Castro was arrested that evening.

   Castro was sentenced Aug. 1 to life in prison plus 1,000 years on his guilty plea to 937 counts including kidnapping and rape.
