LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) -

Lexington Police are asking the public's help in finding a man wanted on several charges stemming from an incident of domestic violence last weekend.

Officers are looking for 22-year-old Jose Luise Ortiz of Columbia. Warrants have been issued for his arrest for criminal domestic violence, child endangerment and burglary.

Investigators say Ortiz forced his way into a woman's home Saturday and attacked her and the child she was holding.  Both the woman and her child were injured.

Police believe Ortiz is being sheltered by family members in or near his last known address in the 7400 block of Claudia Drive in Columbia. His photo is attached to this article.
