CLEVELAND -- A man suspected in a home invasion of an elderly couple earlier this month has turned himself in.

Cleveland Police say the man surrendered to authorities Wednesday and is being held in the central prison unit awaiting charges.

He turned himself on the same day police released surveillance images of a man believed to be involved in the assault, robbery and kidnapping of an elderly couple earlier this month.

It was on June 17 when an elderly man called police to report that his wife had been kidnapped from a home in the 3900 block of Victory Boulevard.

The man, 82, said upon answering a knock on his door, three men rushed in, assaulted him and his wife and threatened them with a gun.

The man was then restrained with duct tape. The trio left with the victims' property and his wife, 80.

The car used was later found with the elderly woman in the trunk. The couple was taken to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries.

The next day, at 1:48 p.m., police say a man tried to use the victims' stolen credit card at a gas station in the area of W. 117th Street and Bellaire Avenue.

He was getting out of the passenger side of a Nissan Versa and entering the gas station, where he attempted to use the stolen credit card.
