HOUSTON -- Crime Stoppers and police are hoping the public can help locate a man who assaulted his girlfriend.
Police say Samuel Wilbert Johnson, 39, was at his girlfriend’s house on Dec. 10, 2009, when he got angry over a phone call she’d received. He allegedly shoved her on a couch and began assaulting her, eventually grabbing a knife and holding it to her throat. Police said he threatened to kill her.
He was arrested on Feb. 26, 2010 and sentenced to five years’ deferred adjudication for aggravated assault of a family member.
But police said Johnson violated his probation on July 16, 2010, and now there’s a warrant for his arrest.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477. Tips can also be submitted online at crime-stoppers.org or by text message. Just text TIP610 plus your info to 274637.
Information leading to Johnson’s arrest could earn a cash reward of up to $5,000.
