The U.S. Marshals Office Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested two violent fugitives wanted by Akron Police last night.

They got James Douglas Hosey, 48, of Slosson Street first. Hosey was wanted for abduction, kidnapping, felonious assault, attempted rape and aggravated menacing from an incident that occurred on July 13, 2015 in the 1400 block of West Waterloo Road. Hosey forced his girlfriend into his truck and drove her around Akron, Norton and Barberton, where he punched, choked and attempted to force her to have sex. At one point, the girlfriend tried run and Hosey dragged her back to his truck. At one point, Hosey grabbed a cord and threatened to kill her with it.

After five hours, Hosey dropped his girlfriend off at the same place he picked her up on West Waterloo Road.

The woman suffered bruises on her face, neck, chest, abdomen, waist, back, arms and legs.  She was treated at Akron General Medical Center.

Hosey was arrested on Country Club Drive in Norton, Ohio by the Marshals Task Force.

The second fugitive captured is Dashawn Marquice Tomlin, 24, of Howe Street in Akron. He was wanted for aggravated murder, felonious assault and robbery.  

On May 24, shortly after 3:00 a.m., officers responded to the area of Boulevard Street and West Thornton Street for a shooting. When they arrived they found Charles R. Vinson, 26, of Ellis Avenue NE in Canton, Ohio, down on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. Vinson was shot outside of an after-hours house.   

Tomlin, who was also wanted for a home invasion robbery on Aberdeen Street, was taken into custody without incident.
