A Level 2 sex offender who disabled his ankle monitor is on the loose and police need your help to find him.
Joseph K. Johnson, 35, has an active warrant for failure to register as a sex offender.
He’s also a suspect in an aggravated assault reported Monday in the Clark’s Chapel area, according to Capt. Philip Pevehouse, spokesman for the sheriff’s department.
Pevehouse said Johnson, who was released on parole, was fighting and swung a baseball bat at some residents.
Anyone with information on Johnson’s whereabouts is asked to the sheriff’s office at 479-783-1051 or dial 911.
Pevehouse said Johnson has shown by his past behavior that he can be dangerous.
In Arkansas, sex offenders are assigned to one of four levels based on a risk assessment process: Level 1: low risk; Level 2: moderate risk; Level 3: high risk; Level 4: sexually violent predator.
Level 2 offenders typically have a history of sexual offenses, according to the state’s sex offender assessment committee.
