Cleveland, OH - Late this morning, members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) arrested 25-year-old Albert Toro and 23-year-old Tera Radesic. Both individuals were wanted by the Cleveland Division of Police for homicide.
Toro and Radesic were wanted in connection with the first homicide that occurred in the city of Cleveland this year.In the middle of the afternoon on New Year’s Day, the victim was found with numerous gunshot wounds in a vehicle in the area of West 98th and Marginal Rd. Police learned that the victim and the suspects were in some sort of verbal altercation prior to the shooting. Over the past five months Cleveland Homicide Detectives worked to identify the suspects involved in the shooting.
As of this week, two suspects, Toro and Radesic were identified as those involved. Members of the NOVFTF were able to locate both suspects going into a store in the 4800 block of Broadview Rd. in Cleveland. They were arrested inside the store without incident and taken to homicide detectives.
U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “Although this homicide marks the beginning of 2021 with violence, the community should know that our police officers will continue to work day and night to keep our communities safe. They will work to reduce violence and to remove those that commit violent crimes out of our community and put them behind bars.”
