Charges filed in July robbery attempt in Pittsburgh’s Oakland section

Abdul Kenyatta Thrower

Pittsburgh police have issued a warrant for a man suspected in an attempted robbery in the city’s Oakland section in July.

The incident happened about 9:30 p.m. July 30 when a man allegedly followed a woman into her apartment building and then to her door where he pushed her into the apartment, police said.

The man – later identified as 45-year old Abdul Kenyatta Thrower – tried to take the woman’s wallet and cell phone, police said. Thrower took off when the woman and her roommate, who was already in the apartment, began to scream.

Thrower is charged with robbery, burglary and simple assault, court records show. Police list his address as Pittsburgh’s North Side, though court records list a McKees Rocks address.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Zone 4 police at 412-422-6520.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
