WANTED IN KING COUNTY --
King County Sheriff's detectives say convicted felon, Dealaunte Bonner, is accused of violating a domestic violence ‘no contact order,’ by kicking down a woman's door and then punching her in the head.
Deputies say Bonner was waiting for the woman when she arrived home on March 28th. Detectives say she ran into her apartment, then locked and barricaded the door. "Dealaunte began kicking the door, he was able to finally force the door open. He got inside of the residence, where he wasn't supposed to be, once he got inside, he went and took a few items from her apartment and prior to leaving, he punched the victim in the face with a closed fist on her left temple, causing pain and also she had a hard time opening her mouth, so it caused a lot of pain to her jaw area, as well,” said King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Abbott.
All of this happened while Bonner is awaiting trial for domestic violence and malicious mischief involving the same victim.
He also has a warrant for his arrest in Lakewood for 2nd Degree Animal Cruelty. Bonner is accused of abandoning his Pit Bull named, 'Thor,' in an apartment with no food, water or place to go to the bathroom after getting arrested for domestic violence on New Year's Eve of 2017. "After getting out of jail, he failed to come back and take care of his dog in his residence for a period of about 10 days. It was barking pretty much around the clock in his apartment. We did, actually, discover that the front door was unlocked. The front window was also cracked open, someone could have gotten in there and have been injured by the dog. When we did go in, it was aggressive. We were able to contain it safely, get it to the Humane Society, but they did establish through evaluation that the dog was too aggressive to put up for adoption and unfortunately had to be euthanized. We were able to establish, through an evaluation by the Humane Society, that the dog did suffer some neglectful injuries, so he's been charged with Animal Cruelty in the 2nd Degree, there is currently a warrant for his arrest in Municipal Court and we would like to have him in custody," said Lakewood Police Lt. Chris Westby.
Bonner also has a charge pending in Seattle Municipal Court for two counts of assault.
His criminal history includes convictions for theft, assault and attempted assault.
In the most recent domestic violence burglary case that he's wanted in King County for, deputies say Bonner left before officers arrived. “He has a $200,000 warrant for his arrest. The courts concern, according to the paperwork, is that they're worried that he's likely to not listen to court orders, he's already violating the ‘no contact order’ and he could go again and assault the victim again, so in fear for her safety, we need to get him back behind bars as soon as we can,” said Sgt. Abbott.
He's 27 years old, 5’7” and weighs 180 pounds.
Detectives say he's known to hangout in the southeast King County area and has lived in Seattle and Renton in the past.
