Trained fighter sought in Oshtemo assault case


OSHTEMO (WKZO) -- A trained fighter is being sought following an alleged domestic violence incident.  Kalamazoo County Sheriff's deputies were called to the Andover Apartments in Oshtemo Township on March 28th on a report of a family fight.

On arrival, deputies found 33-year-old Stephanie Janssen severely beaten, and she had to be taken to the hospital for severe head trauma.  She was only just upgraded to stable condition from critical condition over the weekend.

The suspect is Janssen's boyfriend, 41-year-old trained fighte  Arthur Omowale Payne.  He's thought to have fled the apartment after the fight before deputies arrived on the scene and is wanted for Aggravated Domestic Assault and Assault with intent to do Great Bodily Harm.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office says that Payne should be considered dangerous and should not be approached if he is seen.  They urge anyone with information on Payne's whereabouts to contact the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office or Silent Observer, or for anyone who might see him to call 911.
