— 19 Action News reports a city worker attempted suicide by jumping off the fifth floor inside the rotunda at City Hall after being denied family leave and not receiving a paycheck. Surely there will be more on this tomorrow. (WOIO)

— The FBI says there might be a serial bank robber on the loose. A Mentor bank was hit and the thief is also a suspect in 12 other bank heists in the area. (NewsNet5)
