A Fresno man who reportedly became enraged and committed an assault after someone placed Ajax cleaner in his marijuana bong is sought by police on weapons charges.
The suspect, Corey Duane Childress, 25, is considered to be armed and dangerous after he fled a home in southwest Fresno following the incident.
Police say the attack happened early Wednesday in the 400 block of East Oleander Avenue, near Merced and A streets. An officer arrived to find a man with a large gash on his head. The 47-year-old victim reported that Childress, who is the son of his girlfriend, attacked him with a handgun and fired the weapon after he found the household cleaner in his drug pipe.
Childress reportedly confronted the victim and during a heated argument pulled the gun and struck the victim with the butt of the weapon. Childress also pulled a knife and made threats, police said.
Childress then grabbed his belongings and fled in a 2015 gold Chevrolet Cruze with Michael Chevrolet paper plates. The victim told officers he did not want to go to the hospital because he was afraid Childress would return and steal the victim’s truck.
Anyone who knows where Childress might be is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867.
