In that case he’s also accused of burning his victim with a cigarette before stealing their car.

In a previous case, he has a warrant for his arrest for allegedly setting a house on fire where people were inside.

In 2011, Evans pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated assault and domestic violence where he used a wrench to beat his victim.

In 2017, he pleased guilty again to domestic violence charges when he punched a victim repeatedly until they fell to the ground.

Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County says Evans should be considered violent and dangerous.

Evans may be easy to spot by a neck tattoo of praying hands and the word “blessed.”

What would be a blessing is to get Evans off the street and into a courtroom to answer for his charges.

Anyone with information on Evans’ whereabouts should contact Crime Stoppers at 216-25-CRIME.

Tips that lead to an arrest and a conviction could be eligible for up to a $5,000 reward.
