MPD: Man Accused of Domestic Violence; Stops Woman from Calling Police

James Thornton

This is the guy they're looking for: 29 year old James Thornton.

It happened last month at a house near Ladd-Peebles Stadium. According to investigators, the woman found Thornton using an illegal drug. She confronted him, but when she did, they say he got up in her face. The woman became frightened, thinking Thornton was going to attack her. She tried to dial 9-1-1 on her cell, but that's when Thornton, grabbed her phone, according to police, then stole the tv sets, before disappearing.

Here's Thornton's description: he's 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds. He's now wanted for domestic violence, harassment, and theft.

If you know Thornton, or know where he is, contact the FOX10 Fugitive Files-Crime-Stoppers Hotline at 251-208-7211. Remember: you don't have to leave your name when you call M-P-D with information about this fugitive.
