Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office investigators are seeking the public’s help locating a man wanted for committing acts of domestic violence against his wife and his mother.
Arrest warrants have been issued for Robert Thomas Jordan, 44, of Woodstock, after deputies responded to an incident in which the man threatened to kill his wife and mother before firing a shot inside his parents’ house in the Free Home community, Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jay Baker said.
Jordan is wanted for aggravated assault and kidnapping, Baker said.
Deputies responded to the home on Old Jones Road at about 1 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a call about a domestic abuse incident, Baker said. Jordan was gone when deputies arrived, but “there was evidence at the home that he had fired a weapon inside the house.”
According to Baker, the man’s wife reported Jordan also kidnapped and assaulted her on Monday, when he drove her around against her will and hit her with his gun. Jordan’s wife said she was unable to call police then because her husband broke her phone.
“His wife had injuries to her head where it was reported he hit her with a firearm,” Baker said.
It was also reported that Jordan fired a shot near his wife’s head, an alert posted by the sheriff’s office to be on the lookout for the man stated.
The man’s whereabouts are unknown, but he was last seen driving a white mid-‘90s Dodge pick-up with a camper shell and a Paulding County tag, investigators say.
Jordan was booked into the sheriff’s office in November 2013 for mandatory school attendance, a charge given to parents for failure to make their children go to school, Baker said.
Jordan is listed at 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.
“We have been unable to locate him,” Baker said. “We do consider him armed and dangerous.”
Anyone with any information about Jordan’s whereabouts is urged to call dispatchers at 911.
