CLEVELAND -- U.S. Marshals captured their most recent fugitive in Garfield Heights after a tipster "texted" information on where he was.

Early Tuesday morning, a U.S. Marshals Task Force arrested Julian Tyes, after receiving a text tip revealing his location.

Tyes was profiled Monday as this week's Fugitive of the Week. Tyes was wanted by the Cleveland Division of Police for two separate offenses.

The first charge was related to a carjacking that occurred in June 2012 and  The second charge stems from a domestic violence offense in which it is alleged that Tyes threw a brick through the window of his girlfriend's car while his small child was in the back seat.

Members of the U. S. Marshals Task Force in Cleveland wasted no time responding to it.

The tip provided officers with an address of a family member where Tyes spent the night. Task Force members confirmed the address as a known family member and they made contact at the residence.

Task Force members arrived at the home located on the 12500 Block of Oakview Boulevard in Garfield Heights and Tyes tried to hide in the home's attic.

Tyes eventually surrendered after officers talked him out of the attic without incident.

Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Roberto Robinson said, "If you have the ability to send a text messages then you have the power to help keep the community safe. The tipster wisely sent a text message to our text tipline and our dispatch center immediately relayed to our alert Investigators who did an outstanding job ending this manhunt without anyone getting hurt."
