Oklahoma's Most Wanted: Quaree Hopkins
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Each week we feature seven of Oklahoma County's most wanted. One of the seven will be selected by the "Wheel of Justice" to be featured on air. Learn more here.
Quaree Cheron Hopkins, 33, is wanted out of Oklahoma County on counts of burglary in the first degree, pointing a firearm at another and possession of a firearm after former conviction of a felony.
Court records show on July 2 a resident at 1308 NE 42 Street called police after a man armed with a handgun had kicked in the back door of her home. The man fled the home after 911 was called.
When police spoke with the victim she stated that she was letting the man's girlfriend and her children stay at her home after the couple had domestic problems. The man, later identified as Hopkins, had been at the home the night before and had been asked to leave after getting in an argument with his girlfriend. The next morning he came to the house and kicked in the door. He then went through the home armed with a handgun and told his girlfriend he wanted her to take him to Tulsa. The man then fled the scene when the resident called police.
"Anytime someone's willing to go to somebody's house, kick in their door with a weapon and point it at somebody's face, that's a person that needs to be taken out and put in jail," said Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, Mark Opgrande.
FOX 25 reached out to YWCA about different acts on how a suspect can control their victim in a domestic dispute.
"So him coming to the home and kicking in the door, absolutely that's threatening. Abusers will do things like punch a hole in the wall," said YWCA Domestic Violence Victim Services Senior Director, Angela Beatty. "And that may not be hurting you, but that's definitely a threat and it could be you."
Hopkins is described as 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighing around 175 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office at 405-713-1968.
