Fugitive of the Week: Joshua Cage
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Most burglars are after money, jewelry or electronics, but police say this week's fugitive had something else in mind when he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment.
Syracuse Police say in late May, 32-year-old Joshua Cage was so determined to see his ex-girlfriend that he broke into her apartment. Once inside, police say he grabbed her, threw her around, pushed her and pulled her hair.
She was able to escape, but Cage got away before police could take him into custody.
Cage has been spotted in the 100 block of East Beard Avenue, in a car, by himself. When police pulled up next to him, he took off, ditched the car and fled on foot.
Cage's ex-girlfriend says she hasn't heard from him since the incident. Cage has relatives out of town and police believe he may no longer be in the Syracuse area.
"We're hoping that some viewer may be able to clue us in on a location, either in the city, or where he may be residing," said Sgt. John Savage with the Syracuse Police Department’s Warrant Squad.
Cage (pictured) is 6'1" and weighs 180 pounds.
