WESTMINSTER, Colo. — The reward has been increased to $10,000 to help locate a man who Westminster Police said cut off his ankle monitor and then attacked his ex-wife last week.
Yasmin Usama Dahabreh, 33, died from her injuries Monday, according to a news release from WPD.
About 2 p.m. Friday, police responded to a medical call for a woman who had fallen. Their investigation found the woman had been assaulted, and a warrant for assault and attempted murder was issued for her ex-husband, 30-year-old James Arthur Naulls Jr.
He was on pretrial release from a domestic violence incident in November where he was charged with aggravated assault, WPD said. Authorities said he cut off his GPS ankle monitor and was on the run.
Westminster detectives said they have followed up on several tips and leads, but still need help to capture Naulls Jr.
Detectives said they have reason to believe his friends or family members are helping him hide and evade capture. They warned that anyone found to help him avoid capture will be investigated and could be charged as an accessory to crime, which is a felony.
Naulls has facial and neck tattoos. He is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds, with brown eyes and a shaved head.
Anyone with information that would help locate Naulls is asked to call 911, the Westminster Police Department at 303-658-4360 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a special reward of up to $5,000 in this case.
