Dominic Alexander, 28, has avoided arrest for nearly a year.  He was first featured on West Michigan’s Most Wanted in May 2015.

Alexander is the prime suspect in an alleyway stabbing in Grand Rapids in April 2015.  He’s 5’10”, 150 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

It was around 3:30 a.m. on April 25, 2015 when a 24-year-old man was found suffering from several stab wounds in an alley near Leonard Street and Plainfield Avenue in Grand Rapids.  The victim was rushed to the hospital, treated, and later released.

Police quickly identified Alexander as a suspect in the case, receiving word he may be hiding in an apartment near the crime scene.  An hours long police response followed, but Alexander was never found.

Anyone with information on these fugitives, including their possible whereabouts, is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals Western Michigan Fugitive Task Force tip line at 1-877-926-8332.
