Fugitives: Domestic Violence

To mark Domestic Violence Awareness Month—October—police agencies are searching for 'most wanted' abusers.

There are 300 arrest warrants for felony domestic violence in Santa Cruz County and, during the month of October, cops will be trying to bring those alleged abusers to justice, according to Sheriff Phil Wowak.

“Victims of domestic violence need to know their voices are heard and they are not alone,” Wowak said. “Together we can work to take a stand against this horrible crime.”

Local cops highlighted 10 domestic violence cases they're trying to make arrests in. Two of the fugitives have already been arrested this week, according to Sgt. Steve Carney of the Sheriff's Office.

Charles Schultz was arrested by Capitola police on Bay Avenue around 11:30 a.m. Monday. On the same day, Andy Acosta turned himself in at the court clerk's office in Santa Cruz.
