PEORIA (WEEK) -- Police are searching for a man who allegedly pistol whipped a woman and evaded officers Sunday morning.

A Peoria Police Department spokesperson said they are searching for Dolmokio R. Eckwood Jr., 25, after officers responded to a call in the 2100 block of North Underhill regarding trouble with a male at about 7 a.m. Sunday.

When officers arrived on scene, they located a female victim who had allegedly been pistol whipped, according to the spokesperson.

Officers began searching for Eckwood and spotted his Mitsubishi Outlander in south Peoria. He was pursued but evaded police.

Officers were called back to the 2100 block of North Underhill at 8:39 a.m. after receiving a report Eckwood was attempting to kick in the door. He fled the area before police arrived, according to the PPD.

While officers were on scene, Eckwood called the victim and stated he intended to kill her and then himself, according to the PPD.

His vehicle was spotted again and officers pursued before he evaded.

Police are asking for the public's assistance in locating Eckwood and to call 911 with any information.

He is described as a black male, 5 feet, 9 inches, 230 pounds with brown eyes and is bald.

Police are asking for the public to not approach Eckwood as he is considered armed and dangerous.

He is wanted by police for aggravated domestic battery, aggravated discharge of a firearm, criminal damage to property, unlawful use of a weapon, and no FOID card.

Eckwood currently has active Peoria County warrants for unlawful possession of a controlled substance and domestic battery.
