A Conway man is wanted on charges in connection with a woman being assaulted and threatened with a handgun last month, Lt. Selena Small said Tuesday.

Christopher Willis Mitchell, 25, whose last known address was along Warf Drive in Conway, is wanted on charges of first-degree assault and pointing and presenting a firearm, Small said.

Conway police filed the charges stemming from a June 12 incident when police were called to the area of 1717 Racepath Ave., for a woman being grabbed, forced to walk away from that location and threatened with a handgun, Small said.

The woman said she called police soon after the incident and a police investigation resulted in the charges being filed, Small said.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Mitchell or information about the case can call the Conway Police Department at 843-248-1790.
