NEWTON FALLS, Ohio - A 27-year-old man wanted after a fight at a Cleveland bar that left a waitress blind and a cop with a broken jaw was arrested on Tuesday.
The U.S. Marshals, with the help of the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Marco Correa on Arhaven Drive in Newton Falls at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. He was taken to the Trumbull County Jail.
The Violent Fugitive Task Force said Correa and four others were part of a fight at Charlie’s Place on Lorain Avenue in Cleveland last month. The altercation resulted in a waitress suffering permanent blindness and two other people being knocked unconscious. An off-duty Cleveland police officer, who tried to defuse the situation, was attacked by the group and suffered a broken jaw, Marshals said.
"We are hopeful this arrest brings some peace to the victims and their families that are continuing to suffer from this horrible crime,” said U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott.
Correa was wanted for four counts of felonious assault. The others involved in the incident were already arrested.
Anyone with information on a known fugitive should call the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4-WANTED.
