On Sunday, Jan. 13 shortly after 3:30 p.m., Banning Police Department patrol officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute in the 2500 block of West Nicolet Street.

Once officers arrived, it was discovered a felony domestic battery occurred between a man and a woman.

The man was identified as Anthony Hernandez, a 39 year-old resident of the city of Banning.

Officers were provided information by the victim and a witness that Hernandez was inside the location and refused to come outside to talk to officers.

Officers made several attempts to have Hernandez step out of the residence; however he failed to surrender.

Based off information from the victim and witness, along with past incidents of violence on behalf of Hernandez, the Banning Police Department contacted the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Special Enforcement Bureau, which assumed command of the scene.

After several hours of attempting to get Hernandez out of the residence, entry was made into the residence, where it was learned that Hernandez had escaped.

Hernandez is wanted in connection with domestic violence and is considered armed and dangerous.

Banning Police Department is asking if anyone has additional information about this case or the known whereabouts of Hernandez, to please call the Banning Police Department Detective Bureau at (951) 922-3170.
