The force said in a statement: “After an exhausting nine-hour manhunt involving multiple Montgomery County, state and federal law enforcement agencies, Cedric Joseph Marks has been captured.
“Conroe Police located him still within the city and the community can relax as he is now safely in custody.”
His ex-girlfriend Jenna Scott filed for protective custody last July when she accused Cedric Marks of chocking her unconscious twice, according to temple television station KCEN.
“Each time he allowed me to regain consciousness and then he choked me out again,” Scott told authorities in an affidavit. But her request for protective custody was denied.
Marks has a professional record of 31-27-1 and he last fought against Edmilson Frietas last year where he lost the fight via TKO in the first round.
