A Facebook post from the Amador County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded early Saturday to Plymouth following reports from a woman saying her ex-boyfriend — armed with a gun and bat — entered her home and attacked her and her friend.

The suspect, identified as River Pines resident David Axel Carlson, 34, left the scene before law enforcement arrived, the news release said, and is believed to have been driving a 2004 grey lifted Dodge 2500 pickup truck with a California license plate number TWNRIVS.

On Sunday, the sheriff’s office said deputies located Carlson’s Dodge pickup which they determined was not used during the crime. Investigators also towed the truck he reportedly used during the crime.

The sheriff’s office says Carlson is considered armed and dangerous and has ties to areas of El Dorado and Amador counties. Investigators also believe he may have driven to Nevada in an unknown SUV.
