Man facing robbery charges

NEW CASTLE — A Neshannock Village man is facing charges for allegedly robbing a woman while on a date.

New Castle police said Michael Isaiah Cuffie, 30, of 2 Neshannock Ave., is accused in connection with the incident that allegedly occurred Monday, just before midnight.

A woman told police she picked up Cuffie to go on a date. He told her he wanted to go to a casino, but she did not, she said. Cuffie became agitated and argued with her, she continued, and as they pulled up on Neshannock Avenue, he slapped her, grabbed her purse and stole $200 and a cell phone from it.

Cuffie is charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, theft from a motor vehicle, simple assault and harassment.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
