In the early morning hours of May 26, about 6:55 a,m., Sugar Land police responded to a traffic accident at the intersection of Florence and Eldridge. Eldridge was completely shut down between Sir Raleigh Way and Eldridge Park to provide a landing area for life flight said police spokesperson Doug Adolph. Names of those involved in the accident were not released.
Then, just a couple of days later, May 28 at 5:30 p.m., while out on a traffic stop at U.S. Highway 59 at University Boulevard, a Sugar Land patrol officer witnessed a vehicle crash on a nearby feeder road. When the car came to rest, a female passenger jumped from the vehicle and ran toward the officer, said Adolph. That passenger told the officer she had been kidnapped by her ex-girlfriend. According to Adolph, the passenger caused the car to crash by grabbing the steering wheel in a effort to get away from her captor.
Adolph said, “According to the passenger, Elizabeth Ramon did not want their relationship to end so she claimed she had a gun and told the victim that she was taking her to an unknown location for the night until she changed her mind about ending the relationship.”
Elizabeth Ashley Ramon, 21, of Needville, was arrested and charged with kidnapping. .
Three days later, Sugar Land Police responded to a fight in progress at the M Lounge, 16305 Kensington Drive at 2 a.m., on the morning of June 1, 2011. According to Adolph, “Off-duty officers observed a group of men drinking inside the club. One man started a disturbance and was escorted outside by the manager.” Several others followed them outside and a fight ensued. Adolph said, the off-duty officers identified themselves as police officers and detained several of the men, albeit having to fight them as well.
Saud Quddusi, 18, and Paul Garcia, 19, were arrested and charged with Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct-Fighting. Rachel Aguirre, 18, who attempted to interfere with the arrest of Quddusi and Garcia, was also arrested and charged with Public Intoxication, said Adolph.
On June 5 at 2:38 a.m., Sugar Land officers were checking a vacant house in the 2200 Arundel Crossing that was on the market for sale when they discovered someone sleeping in the home. Adolph said, “Someone had forced their way into the residence and taken up occupancy without consent from the owner.” When police checked they found a man sleeping inside. He was arrested and charged with criminal trespass.
Just 30 minutes later, a woman was robbed near Highway 90A and Dairy Ashford. Adolph said about 3 a.m., on June 5, officers were dispatched to Highway 90/Dairy Ashford regarding a robbery. Once on the scene, they learned that the female victim has been assaulted in a nearby parking lot in the 12900 block of Dairy Ashford. According to Adolph, the victim had recently met her assailant at a Houston restaurant. During the assault the victim sustained minor injuries to her face and arms. Her assailant got away with her cell phone and cash. He was only described as a Hispanic male.
The victim was evaluated by EMS and cleared to go home.
