YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Monday, WKBN got an inside look at the house that sits on the property where police captured wanted rape suspect Luis Cruz Ramos Friday in Youngstown.
The homeowners, who declined to talk on camera, were home at the time of Ramos’ arrest. One gunshot entered their house, but they said they were not in the room that it entered. Agents with the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force shot Ramos in the leg when they found him at the property, on the corner of Maywood Drive and Erie St. in Youngstown. Police determined Ramos did not fire any shots during the encounter Friday.
Ramos, who is from Puerto Rico, led police on a chase for several hours, starting late Wednesday night, and shot at a Youngstown Police cruiser early Thursday morning, almost hitting an officer. Ramos got out of his car and eluded police on foot before being found on the city’s south side Friday.
Ramos is recovering in the hospital Monday.
