Police say Ian Crowley is wanted after a domestic incident on Common Street around 7 p.m. Wednesday. While authorities initially said a knife was used in the assault, they later said the tenderizer caused multiple cut wounds to the victim.
Crowley fled on foot in a dark Fila jumpsuit, according to police.
