Charles E. Dameron, 33, was taken into custody around by Xenia police with assistance from the U.S. Marshals without incident. Dameron — who had a felony warrant for his arrested and was wanted for questioning in a Riverside shooting — fled from Greene County sheriff deputies around 6 p.m. Jan. 5, causing a chase in Xenia, according to Xenia police.

Police, in a Facebook post, said there was information that Dameron had a small child, not his own, in the back seat of the vehicle when he fled. An hour into the manhunt the vehicle and unharmed child were found.
