SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio — Editor's note: the video in the player above is from a previous story.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a Canton man who has been charged with felonious assault and criminal damaging.

Authorities were called at approximately 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 22, after Richardson allegedly assaulted the driver of a car that he was a passenger in. According to the report, Richardson became engaged in a verbal argument with the driver -- a 31-year-old woman -- and threatened her by telling her "I will kill us both," before grabbing the steering wheel and crashing the car into a concrete barrier while traveling eastbound on State Route 224 at the Interstate 77 entrance ramp in Coventry Township.

Richardson fled the scene of the crash and was charged with Felonious Assault (F-3) and Criminal Damaging (M-2). The victim has since been treated and released by EMS.

To this point, authorities have been unable to locate Richardson. It was also found that he had an outstanding warrant out of Akron for Burglary (F-4) for an unrelated incident.

Anybody with information regarding Richardson's wherabouts is asked to contact the Summit County Sheriff’s Office at (330) 643-2181.
