FUGITIVE CAPTURED March 12, 2013 —
The Department of Corrections says Deon Johnson was arrested by the DOC’s Northwest Community Response Unit.

Authorities are looking for Deon Johnson, a high-violent offender and dangerous gang member who is accused of a brutal attack on his girlfriend – who was also pregnant at the time. And now, the Department of Corrections is looking for this missing fugitive.

“During one of his many violations of NCO’s (no contact orders) and assaults on women, he attacked his 6-month pregnant girlfriend. She confronted him about cheating on her. He choked her, she went to the ground and he kept beating on her. Fortunately, she was able to get away and call the police. It’s really important we get your help to find him,” Emily Isaacs with the DOC said.

Johnson has committed many more domestic violence crimes and was also busted for selling crack cocaine to an undercover cop. He’s been in trouble with the law in other states, like Ohio, too.

Johnson is 29 years old and his street name is “Choice,” but he’s definitely not the choice you want to make when it comes to your love life.

If you know where this woman-abusing gang member is, call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
