Police need your help finding an officer on the run

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Police need your help finding an officer on the run from Ohio.

The U.S. Marshals and the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force are looking for Tommie Griffin, III after he broke off his GPS ankle monitor.

An escape warrant has been issued and a reward is being offered for any information that would lead to the capture of Griffin.

Anyone with information is asked to call 866-4-WANTED.

Griffin was charged with rape, kidnapping and felonious assault for allegedly beating and sexually assaulting his girlfriend.

Griffin was arrested in January after his girlfriend says he came in her bedroom, attacked her, sexually assaulted her and fired two shots next to her.

She also said he pointed the gun at her and hit her several time in the face. She was treated at the hospital for her injuries.

That was just hours after service logs show Griffin called Parma police, agitated about another man at his “ex-girlfriend’s” house.

His trial is set for October 30th.
