Neighbors feel vulnerable while Delgado is at large

Local News

The Ross County Sheriff’s Officer has issued a warrant for 53-year-old Jeffrey Delgado’s arrest for felonious assault, kidnapping, and rape.

According to Ross County Common Pleas Court records, Delgado served time in prison for felonious assault after his indictment 2000. He pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to four years.

It’s something neighbor, Ronelle Wiley said she was aware of but never thought he would do something like this.

“Jeff’s been here before, done a lot of work and been in my home,” said Wiley.

Now Wiley feels vulnerable because it’s just her and her daughter inside this trailer.

“I don’t feel safe at all,” said Wiley. “I’m scared.”

Wiley said she has asked her brother to come stay with her at night until Delgado is caught.

“I don’t want to leave my trailer because I’m afraid he might break in my trailer and stay here.”

Her ultimate fear is Delgado could strike again.

“The whole situation’s just crazy,” said Wiley. “Like I said if he’s going to do something like that to them, then he can do something like that to anybody.”
