DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) — The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office has suspended a manhunt for a suspect with multiple warrants who was allegedly involved in a domestic violence call.

Officials say they got the call before 4 a.m. Saturday from the victim who said she was being held at gunpoint by her boyfriend.

Anthony P. Dickson, 38, allegedly fled the residence on K Road shortly before deputies arrived. He also threatened self-harm, according to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials searched Galena for seven hours through wooded areas near the Summerwood and Harbor Point neighborhoods. Neither deputies, nor drones or K9 officers were able to find Dickson.

He is wanted on several warrants from other central Ohio agencies involving burglary and vandalism charges, according to authorities.

Officials ask anyone who sees Dickson to call 9-1-1. He is described as 6′ tall and 185 pounds with dark hair, and was last seeing wearing a white T-shirt and dark pants.
