Suspects Behind Warehouse District Holdup Face Judge

CLEVELAND – Four men accused of orchestrating a violent holdup in Cleveland's trendy Warehouse District over the weekend had their day in court on Tuesday, Action News reported.

The men, who could each face jail time if convicted, are accused of holding up two other men and robbing them at gunpoint. Police officials said that the foursome pulled off the robbery this weekend and are the latest thugs to invade the popular neighborhood.

The victims, including Kevin Frontino, were held up just as they walked up a hill from Cleveland's popular Flats entertainment section.

"He had the gun in my ribs," Frontino said. "I'm just like, wow … like something really worse could of happened. We could have been shot."

Police found the getaway car in the neighborhood a few minutes later and arrested four guys from Youngstown, Ohio.

The latest Warehouse District incident happened just days after Cleveland Indians' star pitcher C.C. Sabathia ran into trouble there. After meeting two men while at a Warehouse District nightclub, Sabathia was robbed by the men at a Downtown Cleveland hotel.
