The Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office is seeking information as to the whereabouts of Manuel Avalos.
In late December Bartholomew County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a report of a battery in Northern Bartholomew County. When Deputies arrived, they found the victim which had been bludgeoned with a baseball bat. The victim sustained significant trauma to the head and was subsequently transported to a trauma unit in Indianapolis.
In January a Bartholomew County Superior Court I warrant was issued charging Avalos with Battery with a Deadly Weapon and Criminal Recklessness.
Manuel Avalos is described as a Hispanic male, 26 years of age, 5'9" tall, 155 pounds, black hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Manuel Avalos is asked to contact the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office Tip-Line at 812-379-1712.
