TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now)- A 20-year-old man accused of kidnapping his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend surrendered to law enforcement Friday afternoon after leading police on an hour-long, high-speed chase.
Ozziel Ramirez was apprehended at Ajo Way and Old Ajo Highway, west of Tucson, around 1:30 p.m. after stopping his car.
His ex-girlfriend, 23-year-old Marveen Estrada, was in the car and uninjured, Tucson Police Sgt. Chris Widmer told Tucson News Now.
