NAVARRO COUNTY– According to Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner, five members of NCSO Tactical Team, assisted by two patrol units, arrested Lino Ramirez, 40, of San Antonio, without incident Thursday afternoon in a remote area off NWCR 4450 near Frost. Ramirez is a violent wanted fugitive out of San Antonio.
He was accused of beating a woman in front of a Bexar County home, severly injuring her body and face, including several stab wounds.
According to FOX San Antonio: “Bexar County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched in April for a disturbance in South Bexar County. The victim reported to deputies that after being involved in a argument with Ramirez in the front yard, he threw her to the ground and proceeded to punch and kick her in the face as she was attempting to leave from the residence”
Captain Stan Farmer was notified Thursday by SAPD that the fugitive may be in Navarro County.
NCSO detectives began investigating immediately based on the information they were given and late afternoon April 18, they discovered a location where they believed the suspect was hiding.
The area was extremely remote and officers had to approach the suspects location from a distance on foot.
Ramirez was living in a van trailer parked inside a mesquite field with limited access. He was taken into custody without incident.
“I am very proud of our officers and that this fugitive was located, arrested and will now face justice for the alleged brutal crime,” Tanner said.
