The O’Fallon Police Department issued a press release Friday asking for the public’s help in locating a domestic assault suspect from an incident on January 1.
Police said that Justin Thompson, 43, of O’Fallon, eluded arrest after fleeing the scene of a domestic assault in the Preston Woods subdivision at 12:33 p.m. on New Year’s Day.
The victim sustained serious injuries in the assault and was treated at a local hospital. The St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued a charge of second degree domestic assault and set bond at $60,000.
Anyone with information on Thompson’s whereabouts is asked to contact the O’Fallon Police Department at (636) 240-3200. “We are not requesting that anyone attempts to detain the subject,” police said.
