COLUMBIA — The Columbia Police Department is looking for information on the whereabouts of Samuel Nathaniel Allen, according to a news release from the department.

Allen, 35, was last seen near Jewell and McBaine avenues at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday when he ran away from officers.

Allen is wanted for an incident that happened at about 6:20 p.m. Sunday at 407 Audubon Drive. He is wanted for first degree burglary, first degree tampering, first degree child endangerment, violation of an order of protection and third degree assault, the release stated.

Officers were dispatched to the Audubon address after a 23-year-old female reported that Allen forced his way into her car, Sgt. Joe Bernhard said Monday. The woman drove to a relative's home with her 2-year-old daughter, where Allen forced his way in and assaulted the woman and endangered the daughter, Bernhard said. 

Bernhard said Allen stole the victim's car, ditched it in the 200 block of West Sexton and eluded officers there.

Allen is also wanted on several warrants for previous domestic incidents for first degree robbery, second degree domestic assault, third degree domestic assault and violation of an order of protection.

Allen is described as 5-feet-10-inches tall and 220 pounds. Allen is considered armed and dangerous and has violent tendencies, the release stated.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Allen should call the police at 442-6131 or Crime Stoppers at 573-875-8477 to remain anonymous.

Supervising editor is Shaina Cavazos.
