CLEVELAND, Ohio – Authorities said a 29-year-old Cleveland woman was pistol-whipped Thursday during an attempted robbery in Tremont neighborhood.

Police said the woman reportedly declined treatment after the incident that occurred about 8 p.m. on Literary Road between West 7th Street and Thurman Avenue.

The woman reportedly parked her car and was walking home when the two robbers who covered their faces with scarves allegedly ran up to her. The alleged robbers reportedly appeared to be about 16 years old.

The robbers then pointed guns at the woman and demanded money. The woman reportedly said she did not have any money, but she offered to hand over her purse and shoes.

One of the robbers allegedly pistol-whipped the woman in the head and called her a “broke b—h.” The two men then walked away down West 7th Street.

In a separate incident, authorities said three masked and armed men reportedly stole over $18,000 from a check-cashing business by ambushing an employee who was opening the building.

The robbery reportedly occurred Tuesday morning at the CashSmart on Lorain Road near West 148th Street where a 33-year-old employee was opening the store about 7:30 a.m. but struggled because the lock was frozen.

The three men then rushed him and put guns to his back, police said. The men reportedly wore black masks, gloves and jackets.

One of the robbers allegedly grabbed the key, opened the door and pushed the employee inside, police said.

The robbers allegedly forced the employee to open the two doors inside behind the cash register that separate employees from customers, police said.

The robbers then forced the employee to open a safe and four cash registers. One of the robbers put cash from the safe in a bag, and the other two men reportedly took the cash drawers and ran out of the building.
