(WNY News Now) – On October 17th, 2023, two 18-year-old Jamestown residents allegedly assaulted a local law enforcement officer, leading to one arrest and a warrant being issued for the other individual.
Jamestown – On the evening of October 17th, 2023, at approximately 5:39 PM, officers from the Jamestown Police Department, participating in a GIVE (Getting Involved in Valuable Endeavors) Detail, observed a white SUV parked illegally on Superior Street at Forest Avenue, obstructing traffic. The officers repeatedly requested the operator, Ruben L. Medina, to move the vehicle to a legal parking spot. Allegedly, Ruben refused to comply with these requests.
As the situation unfolded, Ruben was also asked to provide his driver’s license and registration information, which he reportedly declined to do. Consequently, officers warned him that non-compliance would lead to his arrest. Despite multiple requests, Ruben continued to resist, leading to his eventual arrest. During the altercation, it is reported that Ruben allegedly assaulted an officer.
In a twist of events, Ruben’s twin brother, Raymond M. Medina, allegedly intervened, attempting to free his brother from the officer’s grasp. Raymond is accused of punching the officer in an effort to assist Ruben, before fleeing the scene.
Ruben was subsequently taken into custody and transported to the Jamestown City Jail, where he awaits arraignment in the Jamestown City Court. Meanwhile, Raymond is currently wanted on charges of Assault in the Second Degree with an alleged intent to cause injury to a police officer and Resisting Arrest. The Jamestown Police Department has requested anyone with information about Raymond’s whereabouts to contact them at 716-483-7537 or use the Anonymous Tip Line at 716-483-8477.
