PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man wanted in connection to a violent kidnapping and rape case was arrested Friday night.
Pittsburgh Police say 35-year-old Jeravn Paolucci was found and arrested on the North Shore around 10 p.m. Friday.
Paolucci is accused of working with his cousin, 29-year-old Tisha Ramsey, to kidnap a woman and sexually assault her and her boyfriend while holding them captive.

Ramsey was arrested on Thursday.
Both are facing multiple charges, including kidnapping, rape, sexual assault, simple assault, terroristic threats and firearm violations.
