20 year old Tadarius Smith recently moved here from Alabama with his girlfriend. A woman who Savannah-Chatham Metro Police say became his victim.
“They got into an argument and subsequently he choked her or strangled her,” explained Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Detective Kevin Fikes.
An assault that Savannah investigators say had happened before.
“He does have a history in Alabama,” explains Fikes. “He did it to another female there.”
Now police Smith is on the run, and he is carrying a gun.
“No one is really dealing with him now so he may be on the street homeless or found someone who felt sorry for him and took him in,” said Fikes. “He may feel desperate enough to do something to someone else.”
Tadarius Smith has a deep southern accent and facial hair. He could be in the Park avenue area of Savannah.
