Zanesville Police are asking for help after a weekend incident.  Detective Sergeant Harry Taylor says around 1 a.m. Saturday a breaking and entering at Tire World at 1049 Maysville Avenue   escalated into an aggravated robbery.  Detective Taylor says a person living at the business confronted two armed white males who had entered the business through an exterior window. Taylor says after an exchange of words the suspects, who were wearing dark clothing, fled with property belonging to the business.  The incident is believed to be related to a series of breaking and entering offenses that have victimized businesses in the south and downtown area of the city over the past two weeks.  Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Zanesville Police Department at (740) 455-0700.
