CLEVELAND - A suspect in the home invasion and assault of an elderly Cleveland couple has been charged.
On June 17, a group of men broke into a Victory Boulevard house and attacked the homeowners, police said. The 82-year-old man was assaulted and restrained with duct tape while his 80-year-old wife was kidnapped.
The woman was later found in the trunk of the suspect's car. The husband and wife were both injured.
Earlier this week, officers released photos of a suspect in the case. According to Cleveland police, the man tried to use the couple’s stolen credit card at a gas station. He turned himself into officers at the first district on Thursday.
Police said that Ronald Ellis has since been charged with receiving stolen property, aggravated burglary, felonious assault, kidnapping and robbery.
Ellis will appear in court Saturday morning.
