Crime Stoppers of Houston and the Houston Police Department Special Victims Division are seeking help from the public to find Eli Escamilla, a fugitive wanted for injury to a child and assault (family violence). 

Escamilla repeatedly punched his wife in the face and body at around 3 p.m. on June 30 inside a home on North Houston Rosslyn Road near Antoine Drive, according to a statement released by Crime Stoppers.
