CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The U.S. Marshals are looking for an escaped fugitive who they said assaulted an officer before running away in Cleveland.

Officers were driving Gunderman to another location on Thursday. When the vehicle stopped on Broadway Avenue to drop off another inmate at a treatment facility, police said Gunderman assaulted one of the officers and got away.

Marshals, Cleveland Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol searched the area, but couldn’t find him.

Gunderman’s criminal history includes narcotics, burglary and theft convictions, according to police.

Marshals arrested three people accused of helping Gunderman escape – 42-year-old Deanna Taylor, 30-year-old Alfred Dicenzi and 29-year-old Natasha Gunderman.
