Task force takes 4 fugitives into custody
The four former fugitives are in jail in Mahoning and Trumbull counties.
YOUNGSTOWN -- A Youngstown man who was to appear in Monday's Vindicator as the U.S. Marshals Service in Northern Ohio's "Fugitive of the Week" was captured Saturday.
Edward Washington, 45, was caught at the Western Reserve Transit Authority bus terminal by members of the Northeast Ohio Violent Crimes Task Force, said Dean Michael, a federal marshal. The homeless Washington was wanted by Youngstown police on charges of rape and felonious assault.
He was one of four fugitives taken into custody by the task force in two days.
Michael said Washington was spotted by task force members at the terminal, where he was known to frequent. He was taken into custody without incident.
Three others were captured Friday, Michael said.
Decarlos Jones, 31, of Woodside Avenue, was arrested at his home on Youngstown police warrants charging him with two counts of felonious assault and one count each of domestic violence, child endangering and aggravated burglary.
Hardrick Glenn, 49, of Willis Avenue, was captured at his home on warrants by Youngstown police charging him with two counts of rape.
Seneca Givins, 27, of Boardman, was captured in a vehicle on Eldon Drive in Champion Township by task force members and Champion police.
Michael said Givins was wanted in Monmouth County, N.J., on two counts of possession of drugs and one count each of burglary, resisting arrest and distributing drugs within a school zone. Michael said the local task force received information from the New York-New Jersey Task Force operated by the marshal's service that led to Givins' arrest.
Givins is in the Trumbull County Jail awaiting extradition to New Jersey. Washington, Jones and Glenn are in the Mahoning County Jail.
