DETROIT (WXYZ) — October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and the U.S. Marshals are teaming up with Detroit Police to track down three of this week's Detroit's Most Wanted.
Right now, authorities are working to track down 30 fugitives with open warrants for domestic violence. They're asking for your help in locating the three suspects they've deemed the most violent.
"Domestic violence is such a habitual crime, it happens so often – we want to take a stand against it," said U.S. Marshals Senior Inspector Rob Watson. "We want to stop this behavior."
That's why Detroit Police and the U.S. Marshals are on the streets searching for 30 people wanted for domestic violence.
"During the assault the woman is saying 'we love you don’t do this, this is our baby'," said Inspector Watson.
Tarreannio Smith is wanted for an assault on Detroit's east side.
"Smith is accused of breaking into his girlfriend's house – he has a child with that woman – assaults her, and then points a gun at her face, and her 6-month-old child," said Inspector Watson.
The 30-year-old is facing felony gun charges along with charges for domestic violence and child abuse.
"Adrianna White is from Detroit’s west side, we think she’s still in that area, and we’re hoping the viewers of Channel 7 will be able to help us locate her," said Inspector Watson.
The 25-year-old has been wanted since July.
In July of this year, she assaulted her girlfriend and hit her in the face with a rock," said Inspector Watson. "The girlfriend was able to get away and leave the house with her children and flee to a gas station, where she was trying to seek help and assistance and ends up passing out in a parking lot of the gas station due to loss of blood."
Police say Reginald Page also tops the list.
"Reginald Page breaks into his girlfriend's house – hits her in the face with a metal baseball bat and continues to assault and beat her," said Inspector Watson. "She wakes up, regains consciousness and is able to call 911 where an ambulance is able to come out and transport her to Henry Ford Hospital."
Police believe the 20-year-old is on Detroit's west side or possibly Highland Park.
"Besides it being Domestic Violence Awareness month, it’s about bringing victims some closure, it’s about helping them, empowering them to know that this type of behavior is not going to go unpunished, it’s not going to go unchecked," said Inspector Watson.
It's a message to abusers and every victim.
"We want them to know that we, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Detroit Police Department, other police agencies out there – we’re gonna be there for you. If you need help, please report this, report the behavior," Inspector Watson urged. "Contact your local police department, we will help you."
