LORAIN, OH (WOIO) -

A Lorain man wanted for felonious assault was arrested Wednesday night in Amherst.

Police picked up Nicholas Latorre, 20, around 8 p.m. when they stopped an SUV he was riding in. He was found trying to hid under a blanket in the back of the truck.

Latorre is accused in a shooting last month in Lorain.

According to Amherst Police, he had suspected heroin and marijuana on him when he was arrested.

Police say they knew who Latorre was as soon as they saw him because a media release featuring the Fugitive of the Week, with his picture on it, had just went out a few hours earlier.
