EL PASO — Authorities are asking for the public's help locating a wanted man, accused of attacking an ex-acquaintance. According to El Paso county deputies, Miguel Angel Lopez, 30, forced his way into the woman's northeast apartment a few weeks ago and violently assaulted her. The victim tried to call 911 but Lopez allegedly snatched the phone from her and slammed it to the ground. Luckily neighbors heard the commotion and phoned for help, but Lopez left the area before officers arrived. Authorities are now searching for 30-year old, who has not been seen since the night of the assault. If you see Lopez call police or crime stoppers at 566-TIPS.
