The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is offering a reward for information which would lead to the capture of fugitive Joseph Stevenson.

Stevenson is wanted by the U.S. Marshals and the Elyria Police. Stevenson is wanted for aggravated burglary, domestic violence and unlawful restraint. It is alleged that on Oct. 23rd of last year, Stevenson allegedly entered his ex-girlfriend's apartment through an unlocked door. Stevenson began yelling at her then choked her and threw her to the ground. Stevenson also stole her phone so she couldn't call for help and would not let her leave the apartment.
