BRONX NEWS: Bronx man arrested for abducting girlfriend after 9-hour hunt


After a nine-hour hunt, State Troopers arrested a 28-year-old man Monday who abducted his girlfriend from a Bronx apartment at gunpoint, crashed his car and then fled on foot, officials said.


Johuan Ramos, also from the Bronx, allegedly forced the victim out of an apartment and into his car before driving north on I-87, State Trooper David Howard said.


Ramos and the victim were recorded passing through the Yonkers toll barrier at about 5 a.m., shortly before he lost control and smashed into the guard rail in Greenburgh near the Ardsley service area, Howard said.


Ramos then fled on foot, abandoning the victim and vehicle — its windshield pocked with bullet holes — on the highway, officials said.

Bronx man suspected in grandfather’s death before he fled to N.J.


The woman was taken to an area hospital and treated for minor injuries.


A subsequent search for Ramos ended about nine hours later when police discovered him in Greenburgh around 2 p.m., Howard said.


Charges were pending.

Air Jordan 1 High “Olympic” Takes Flight Later This Summer

Although Nike has taken all the necessary measures to return many of their famed Olympic silhouettes from the 1992 games in Barcelona, they’re also making an effort to birth new traditions by placing patriotic hues over other heritage-based silhouettes.

Stay tuned for a Jordan Release Date on the Air Jordan 1 High “Olympic” and grab a closer look below.
