Leo Yallup has been caught and jailed in Idaho, booked into the Nez Perce County Jail the day after Christmas.

Police in the small Yakima county town of Wapato need your help hunting down a convicted felon accused in a violent home invasion, and detectives think he could be hiding on the Yakama Indian Reservation.

Under the guise of a friendly visit, detectives say Leo Yallup and a thug buddy of his went inside a couple’s home last month, and unleashed a brutal attack — beating the man unconscious, then going at his girlfriend — throwing a cell phone at her face, and hitting her in the arm with a stick.

Detectives say her boyfriend was almost unrecognizable: Part of his skull around his eye was fractured, and he was kicked so hard in the face, he had a shoeprint imbedded in his cheek.

After the attack, detectives say the two thugs stole the victim’s TV, and his car, which was later found abandoned in Wapato.

All those crimes has Yallup wanted for Armed Robbery 1st degree, Assault 2nd degree and Theft of an Automobile
