Maryland State Police are looking for Dante A. Williams, 36, who is known to have lived at several places in and around Baltimore, including Brooklyn and Catonsville, police said in a statement Friday.

Police say Williams assaulted and then pushed his 27-year-old girlfriend out of a moving vehicle on Interstate 95 in Baltimore County earlier this week. She was seriously injured and was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said.

State Police issued a warrant charging Williams with attempted first-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault.

Around 6 p.m. Tuesday, Williams was driving south on I-95 with his girlfriend, a Baltimore resident, and his 14-month-old son, police said. The victim told police that after Williams struck her and threatened to stab her with a knife, she asked to be let out of the car, police said.

According to police, the woman said she undid her seat belt and opened the door and Williams pushed her out. A witness driving nearby saw her thrown from the vehicle, the statement said.

Williams is a black male, about 6'5" and 200 pounds, police said.

Police say he is believed to be armed with at least a knife and should be considered dangerous.

Anyone with information about his location is urged to contact State Police at 410-780-2700 or to call 911.
