Fugitive arrested for 2016 home invasion

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Members from the U.S. Marshal's arrested the suspect wanted for a 2016 home invasion. The arrest occurred on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the U.S. Marshal's Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force, 21-year-old Johndale Kind was arrested after the task force received a tip that the suspect was hiding in the area of East 43rd Street near Outhwaite Avenue. While searching for Kind, the task force confiscated two handguns, one of which was found in a baby's crib. Kind was eventually located in the 2500 block of East 43rd Street.

Kind was wanted for homicide and unrelated domestic violence charges. He was connected to a home invasion robbery in Nov. 2016 in the 2200 block of East 38th Street. During the home invasion, one of the suspects was shot and killed by the homeowner. A second suspect was shot in the face by the homeowner and was arrested later at the hospital. Kind was the last suspect involved in the incident.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said, "Swift work by the task force led to a quick arrest of this fugitive, and Cleveland's streets are safer tonight with two more guns off the streets."
