Man Dressed as a Woman Arrested for Trying to Steal a Ring


Steubenville police arrested a man after he allegedly tried to steal a ring from Kay Jewelers at the Fort Steuben Mall Tuesday night.

The incident happened about 7:30 p.m. Officials said Mark Levenson, 43, of Lawrence, PA entered the store dressed as a woman and asked the clerk to try on a ring. Once the ring was in his possession, authorities said he ran out of the mall to a getaway car, being driven by his 14-year-old daughter, waiting outside.

Police were able to track the two down in the Schiappa Library parking lot.

Levenson has been charged with theft, tampering with evidence and contributing to the unruliness of a child.
