West Tennessee man wanted for assaulting woman, kidnapping child

U.S. Marshals are searching for an extremely dangerous man who may be in the West Tennessee area.

Law enforcement is searching for Anthony Allen. He is wanted on charges of Attempted First Degree Murder, Especially Aggravated Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault and Federal Probation Violation.

According to a U.S. Marshals spokesman, Allen is accused of assaulting a woman in Brownsville, Tenn. and kidnapping her two-year-old child on April 17. The child was later found unharmed in a driveway at a local home.

The spokesman said Allen recently served more than 10 years in prison for weapon violations and another kidnapping case, which involved the same woman in the current case. He reportedly has a violent criminal history and issues with “rage, anger and impulsivity.”

Allen has made threats towards law enforcement offers recently and stated “he will not be taken alive,” according to the U.S. Marshals. He is believed to be armed and dangerous.
