Hubbard manhunt suspect in custody

HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) — A man who escaped Hubbard Township police on Thursday when they tried to serve with him a warrant has been captured.

Ted Frisch, 43, was tracked down by Hubbard Township and U.S. Marshal officers in the Cornersburg area where he was arrested without incident about 1:30 p.m. Friday, according to Hubbard Township Police Chief Todd Coonce.

Frisch was wanted for failure to appear on robbery, assault and disorderly conduct charges stemming from an incident with his girlfriend in which he allegedly stole her cell phone and assaulted her. Coonce said Frisch was supposed to report to court to have an electronic monitoring device placed on him as a condition of his bond.

The chief said Frisch now will face additional charges of resisting arrest. He also said police will investigate whether Frisch was assisted by anyone during the manhunt on Thursday and if so, they will be charged with harboring a fugitive.

Police from several departments spent several hours Thursday looking for Frisch in a wooded area off State Route 304. The search began at Churchill Road and Gale Avenue across from Hubbard Lumber.
