NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio -- The Ohio State Highway Patrol said one armed robbery suspect is in custody, but a second suspect has not been arrested in North Ridgeville.

A 17-year-old was captured early Wednesday morning. Another suspect ran into a heavily wooded area, Lt. Carlos Smith, Ohio State Highway Patrol Elyria post, told Fox 8.

Late Tuesday, the North Ridgeville Police Department asked residents to stay in their homes as they searched for the suspects. Residents were urged to use caution as they went about their days on Wednesday. At just before 8 a.m., authorities said the search was over and that officers were returning to regular patrols.

Now, police will wait on tips or for the suspect to turn himself in.

Lt. Smith told Fox 8 this started around 10:45 p.m. Tuesday night with an armed robbery at the Subway at E. 106th St. and Lorain Ave. in Cleveland.

Cleveland Police pursued the suspects into North Ridgeville. They were driving a stolen Mercedes. The chase ended when police used stop sticks. The two men jumped out of the vehicle near Route 83 and Chestnut Ridge Road.

Anyone with information should call 911.
