BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Five violent offenders remain on the run, and Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison seeks the public for help locating them.
Police continued to search for five men who were wanted for violent crimes in the city. Harrison announced that the following men were wanted during a January 8 press conference:
Kentay Gwaltney, 43, wanted five outstanding arrest warrants, including rape.
Shawn Williams, 30, wanted assault and burglary on open arrest warrants.
Lawrence Scott, 34, wanted on charges of rape
The 43-year-old Rodrigeuz Woodland wanted for first degree assault
Christopher Jones, 27, wanted to include armed robbery on several counts.
Harrison said city police continue to work to reduce violent crime and find those responsible for the violence in the city.
Police arrested 23 guns in the past week.
"In the past seven days we have arrested over 60 violent crimes including attempted murder, shootings, armed drug distribution robbery and carjacking," said Harrison.
Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said the city has recorded eight murders and 21 non-fatal shootings so far this year.
"Although these numbers are down from last year – and that's positive – I'm still not satisfied," said Scott. "Life in our city is still too much."
