Members of the U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force arrested an Ohio fugitive in Salem on Thursday.

Oregon State Police said it all started back on March 30, when authorities in Ohio began investigating a home invasion robbery.

According to Madison County deputies, three masked men armed with two handguns and a baseball bat got into a home and attacked the homeowner, sending him to the hospital.

His daughter was located at the home unharmed and the robbers got away with several valuables, deputies said.

Items stolen in the home invasion included sports memorabilia, electronics and a revolver.

On April 1, news outlets in Ohio reported a reward offered for anyone providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for the crime.

On April 15, one of the suspects was identified as Zachary Davis, 24, of Columbus, OH, police said.

This past Tuesday, authorities issued an aggravated burglary warrant for Davis with a nationwide radius, investigators said.

He is also expected to face charges including aggravated robbery, felonious assault and kidnapping.

Investigators learned Davis was in Salem, OR, so they called the U.S. Marshals Office for help taking him into custody, detectives said.

Davis was contacted by authorities at a Motel 6 in Salem on Thursday, but he took off and a short foot chase ensued, FOX 12 learned.

Davis was ultimately caught, but resisted arrest, officers said.

After being taken into custody, investigators said they found a small amount of methamphetamine, heroin and prescription pills in Davis' possession.

He was taken to the Marion County jail and is awaiting extradition back to Ohio.
