The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department needs help locating a dangerous man.

The department issued a notice trying to locate Lamir Dante Britton, 28. He is wanted on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, motor vehicle theft and fleeing and eluding police. He is considered dangerous.

It started last night at a house at 5571 Meadowstone Drive around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

That’s where Britton allegedly assaulted his 27-year-old ex girlfriend, then took off with her vehicle. He allegedly returned to the apartment and assaulted her again, armed with a knife according to police.

Britton fled the scene in her vehicle.

Police attempted to pull him over, but he sped away. During the chase a police cruiser was damaged.

Stop sticks were deployed causing the Britton to crash, that’s when he ran away on foot.

He is described as 5’10”, 170 lbs, black hair, and brown eyes.

A warrant was issued for assault with a dangerous weapon, motor vehicle theft, and fleeing and eluding police.

Anyone with information or whereabouts is asked to call 269-383-8821 or Silent Observer.
