Santa Cruz Co. man sought for choking woman, using stun gun on her

WATSONVILLE, Calif. - Santa Cruz County Sheriff's deputies are seeking a 50-year-old man whom they say attacked a female friend early Saturday morning. For some reason, Campos suddenly attacked the woman, punching her, choking her and even using a stun gun against her several times.

The woman eventually was able to fight Campos off and flee from the home. She suffered moderate injuries.

Sheriff's detectives served a search warrant at Campos' residence and seized several items of evidence, but Campos had already fled the scene. He's wanted on a warrant for assault with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment. 

He's described as a Hispanic man, about 5'6" and 190 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair. He has an extensive criminal history and deputies say he should be considered dangerous.

The Sheriff's Office asks anyone with additional information about this incident or the whereabouts of Campos to contact the Investigation Division at 454-7611 or Sheriff's Dispatch at 471-1121.
