CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -Charleston Police are looking for Freddie Lee Peters.

Peters, 43, is wanted on charges of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, violation of a protection order and criminal domestic violence second offense in connection with a December, 2008 incident.

"He assaulted a 70 year old individual while there. He later assaulted his girlfriend who lives there, and he had a restraining order at the time," said Charleston Police Cpl. Fred Bowie.

"It's certainly not enough protection to stop any kind of violence that may go on."

"Anybody that would assault a 70 year old man is not going to take any concern about assaulting anybody else," said Bowie.

"He's probably a very violent person. Probably need to get him off the streets as soon as possible."

Peters stands 5'8" and weighs about 170 lbs. Investigators believe he's still in the Charleston area.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111, You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
