CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Clarence Davis is accused of threatening his girlfriend with a gun and abducting her children today. The children are safe after an AMBER Alert was issued, but police said Davis is still at large and armed and dangerous.
Davis claims to be a former army infantryman. Tri-C said he was part of the private security academy and studied criminal justice in 2015 and 2016. This past August, Davis completed a 20-hour pistol certification course at Peak Impact Tactical Training Center in Canton. On Facebook, the 24-year-old said he is the head of security at a "private club." He claims to have worked as an armed guard for two local private security companies, including RCAP Security. Both companies told us Davis never spent a day on the job. The state of Ohio confirms Davis is registered to work for RCAP.
We also checked to see if Davis has a criminal record. He was busted for soliciting in Cleveland in 2015 and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.
According to authorities, the incident took place in the 27600 block of Chardon Road. Davis is believed to still have the gun on him and considered armed and dangerous.
Davis is 5 foot 9, 215 pounds with brown eyes, black hair and driving a 2013 Hyundai Sonata that is dark blue with a rear license plate of GWS5908 and a front plate of BOB.
