BOARDMAN

A township woman faces criminal charges after reportedly suffering a drug overdose in November.

Kimberly Ramun, 40, of Angiline Drive was arrested Monday on warrants charging her with endangering children, possessing drug-abuse instruments and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The charges stem from a Nov. 1 incident in which police and emergency and medical responders were called to Ramun’s home for a suspected overdose.

There, a woman reported she had found Ramun unresponsive on a bedroom floor. A 9-year-old was present at the time of the overdose.

Ramun was revived with several doses of naloxone, a medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

Police reported finding syringes, a burnt spoon, and medical gauze sitting on a dresser in Ramun’s bedroom.

Reached by The Vindicator on Tuesday, Ramun declined to comment.

Her arrest is the third in several days by township police for similar incidents.

Police on Friday arrested Kristina Green, 28, of Hillman Way

Man, woman charged in deadly Waco home invasion shooting …

WACO, Texas (KWTX) A man and a woman who were originally charged with capital murder in a deadly home invasion shooting in 2015 near the Baylor campus are headed to prison after pleading guilty to lesser offenses Tuesday.

Garrett Gage, 19, and Cierra McKenzie Barber, 22, were charged in connection with the February 2015 incident that left Braeden Freeman, 20, of Waco, and Keith William McClure, 19, of Temple, dead.

Gage was injured by gunfire during the robbery.

They both pleaded guilty Tuesday to the lesser offense of aggravated robbery.

Barber was sentenced to 30 years in prison and Gage received a 40-year sentence.

Good Samaritan stops suspect who was beating woman on NYC street

A good Samaritan interrupted a would-be mugger as he pummeled a woman into unconsciousness a block away from her Lower East Side home, officials said Monday.

The 61-year-old victim suffered bleeding on her brain, and needed to be intubated after the Saturday attack, prosecutors said

Police sources said the attacker, Devin Brown, 23, was looming over the victim on Forsyth St. near Stanton St., by Sara D. Roosevelt Park, when a passing motorist noticed her legs sticking out from behind a tree at 6 a.m.

The witness got out of his car and asked Brown what he was doing, and Brown twice yelled out, “She robbed me!”

Woman uses baseball bat to fight off robber – WBIR

With the help of a baseball bat, a 52-year-old East Tennessee woman foiled one man’s home invasion plans and landed him in jail. 

According to Kingsport Police, the victim answered a knock at her door Saturday night to find a woman holding a flyer about a lost dog.

Right when she opened the door a masked man stepped into the doorway, grabbed her arm, and tried to pull her outside. When the woman wouldn’t budge, police said the man pushed the woman back inside the home and shouted, “This is a robbery!” 

The two then struggled and the woman partially removed the suspect’s mask and recognized him as Joe M. Sotello, a longtime family friend.

When Peter Gold saw a man dragging a woman by the hair toward his vehicle around 4 a.m. on Nov. 20, 2015, in New Orleans, he didn’t think. He just reacted.

“I said to myself, ‘This isn’t right,’ ” Gold, 27, tells PEOPLE, speaking out Tuesday for the first time about the incident.

“The next thing I knew I was out of the car and yelling at the guy, ‘Leave this girl alone! Get away from her!’ ” Gold recalls.

The man, later identified as Euric Cain, turned to Gold and demanded money, he says.

Woman charged with murder in Oklahoma home invasion planned the crime: police

carlballou/iStock/Thinkstock(BROKEN ARROW, Okla.) — Elizabeth Rodriguez, the woman who allegedly drove three teenage boys to a home in Oklahoma where they were shot to death after attempting a home invasion robbery, told investigators that she planned the crime, officials said.

She also told investigators that she left one of the burglars for dead, according to police.

The Wagoner County Sheriff’s office arrested Rodriguez on three first-degree murder and three first-degree burglary warrants and jailed her without bond after she told them that she had information about a shooting that took place at a home in Broken Arrow, a suburb of Tulsa.

Rodriguez waived her right to an attorney in speaking with investigators today, police said, and claimed that she had no personal connection to Zachary Peters, the 22-year-old victim of the alleged home invasion attempt, whose actions are being investigated as a potential act of self-defense under the state’s “Stand

A good Samaritan’s pickup truck was stolen Wednesday morning by a woman he stopped to help after her car caught fire on Interstate 70 in west Topeka, authorities said.

The theft led to a high-speed chase through western Shawnee County, finally coming to an end just west of Dover in Wabaunsee County.
