He came up from behind her, grabbed her by the hair, pushed her up against the wall and then started strangling her. He threatened he would kill her if she continued on with court the next day,” said Sgt. Cindi West. 

Sanchez was angry because his ex-wife filed a protection order against him. He ripped it up and threw it at her before leaving, say deputies. Sanchez is wanted for Assault 2 Domestic Violence, Violation of a No Contact Order and Domestic Violence Felony Harassment.  “We fear for her safety. This guy is dangerous. We don’t even know for sure if this is his real name. We know he uses other names, possibly fled to Mexico and came back and using a different identity so the picture is the most important part on this case, again his name may not be Alfonso Sanchez. It could be something else,” said Sgt. West.

He is 5’07” 155 lbs with black hair and brown eyes.
