  Youngstown Teen Admits To Lying To Police, Charged With Making A False Alarm  
  January 19, 2023 Edition  
     An 18-year-old Youngstown male has been charged with making false alarms when he claimed he had been assaulted when his car ran out of gas on Boardman-Poland Rd. near Hot Head Burritos on Jan. 6 shortly after 2:30 a.m.
      Levi Williams, of 551 Mistletoe Ave., Youngstown, was found by police in the waiting room of Akron Children’s Hospital on Market St., where four police officers answered a call of a teenager who claimed he had been assault.
      “Williams had a torn t-shirt and was in the waiting room with his mother and father,” Ptl. Brian Moss said. Williams told police he is employed at Wendy’s, 433 Boardman-Poland Rd. and finished his work day at 2:30 a.m. As he was leaving the business, he told police his car ran out of gas, so he walked to Sheetz (at Boardman-Poland Rd. and Southern Blvd.) in a t-shirt and no jacket, with a gas can.
      He told police once he got gas, he walked back to his car and while putting gasoline into his car a black male in a 2003 Lincoln Aviator yelled, ‘hey.’
      “Williams said he didn’t pay much attention to it because he was not sure where the voice came from. The male (from the Aviator) then approached him and grabbed onto his t-shirt, ripping it halfway down his chest,” Officer Moss said.
      Williams said he then ran on foot behind the old Golden Corral building and stayed there for about 90 minutes, before returning to his car and then going to Akron Children’s.
      While interviewing Williams, he became uncooperative...and stated he did not want to talk any longer,” Ptl. Moss said, noting “Williams was completely dry when it had been raining and snowing the entire time he was outside when the temperature was 35-degrees.”
      Williams told police his phone was ‘dead,’ but told his mother that he left his phone in his vehicle. When asked why he didn’t go home, or contact the police, Williams stated that he went to the hospital “because he was scared and thought police would be inside.”
      On Jan. 9, police asked Williams to explain the assault and the teenager replied that he as “at a girl’s house” and was afraid to tell his parents, so he made up the whole thing.”
      Williams showed-up at the Boardman Police Department near 1:45 p.m. on Jan. 11 where he was booked on a warrant for making false alarms. He was released pending his arraignment in Boardman Court.
