Cleveland - A US team has arrested a manslaughter convict who's been on the run since 1975, during an operation in Puerto Rico.

Sixty-four-year-old Ramon Flores of Cleveland was arrested on Tuesday in San Juan.

US Marshal Pete Elliott says Flores was convicted of manslaughter for hitting a man in the face with brass knuckles and shooting him in the chest during an argument in July 1971. He also has an assault conviction stemming from an April 1971 stabbing and attempted robbery.

Flores was convicted and sentenced to two to 35 years in prison in 1972. He was released in January 1975, but fled after violating his parole.

No current attorney information could be found for Flores in court records.
