SOUTHINGTON -- Police are looking for a man who eluded officers on Monday while he was wanted in connection with domestic violence offenses.

Jordan Williamson, 25, is wanted in connection with two warrants, police said.

According to police, officers were doing surveillance in the area of Gwen Road, looking for Williamson, when they saw him get into a car around 12:15 p.m. Police tried to pull him over, but did not stop.

Police said they used stop sticks to disable the vehicle Williamson was in. He abandoned the vehicle on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike, in the area of South End Road, where he fled on foot, police said.

Southington and Cheshire police secured a perimeter and searched the southeast area of town. They could not locate Williamson, and they called the search off around 3 p.m.

Police said Williamson was wanted in connection with two domestic disputes over the weekend. There are two warrants out for his arrests, each charging him with violation of a protective order and breach of peace.

Police late Monday said they are looking for Williamson, who has been described as a black male, standing 6 foot, 2 inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white tank top, dark colored sweatpants, carrying a dark colored bag.

Police said it is not believed that Williamson is a danger to the public. However, the public has been encouraged not to approach him.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Southington police at 860-621-0101.

Police said Williamson is expected to face additional charges in connection with the incident Monday.
