Rochester Fugitive Caught
Mankato, MN (KROC AM News) - A man wanted by Rochester police for confronting his ex-girlfriend and threatening her co-workers with a gun last week was in jail in Mankato Monday morning.
Records show 37-year-old Ramon Ruiz of Eyota was booked into the Blue Earth County jail Sunday night after being involved in a chase with a state trooper. No other details have been released yet.
The local incident happened last Wednesday at The Boulders and Townhomes complex near the Lowe’s store.
A woman who works at the complex was in her car eating lunch when Ruiz showed up and began pounding on the window, yelling at her to get out. Two of the woman’s co-workers saw what was going on and told Ruiz to leave or they would call police. He then grabbed a handgun from his car and began waving it around and threatened to “shoot this place up.” He eventually drove away.
