Officials with the Baldwin County Sheriff's office says on Monday, September 10, 2018 at 5 p.m., their office received a call from a woman stating she was in fear of her life because of threats from her boyfriend, Ledarrius Sigler.

According to authorities, the victim said Sigler was at her uncle’s residence located at 17210 Sawmill Road West in Little River attempting to gain entry.

They say, once on the scene, deputies discovered a victim lying on the ground outside covered in blood. The victim, later identified as Joel Lewis Dees, was the uncle of the victim.

Authorities say Dees was suffering from a large laceration to the top of his head and was transported to North Baldwin Medical Center in Bay Minette.

Deputies entered the residence to determine if the suspect was inside and to determine if additional victims were present. A few moments later, they say deputies received a call from the victim who was now at the Shell Gas Station in Stockton, asking for medical treatment for herself.

Deputies arrived at the Shell Station and discovered that the victim and a 4-year-old female had been forcibly taken from the residence in Little River. 

They say the victim had been assaulted with a wooden bat by Sigler. She was transported to North Baldwin Medical Center.

This incident was a continuation of a domestic argument that occurred the previous night in Atmore in which Sigler unlawfully took the victim's 2009 gold Hyundai Sonata, Alabama license number 9960AY9.

Sigler is believed to still be driving this vehicle possibly in the Mobile area as well as Baldwin County.

Warrants have been signed for Sigler for:

2 counts of Kidnapping 1st Degree

2 Counts of Assault 2nd degree

1 count of Burglary 1st Degree

1 count of Theft 1st Degree

Please contact authorities if you have information regarding his whereabouts.
