As of 8:15 p.m. Saturday, the Wayne County Sheriff's Office was looking for Tony Frank Anderson, 48, after a warrant was sworn out for his arrest for misdemeanor breaking and entering Saturday afternoon.

Anderson was reported to have driven to the residence of Gordon Michael Talton, Francis Smith Bailey and Walter Kevin Bailey Jr. on U.S. 117 alternate in Dudley at about 3:45 p.m. in a blue Chevrolet minivan.

He was reported to have walked into the home uninvited, used the restroom and then walked into the bedroom of Talton, 51, and Ms. Bailey, 39, where he began slapping Talton. Anderson then allegedly pushed Talton through a glass door, cutting his arm, before striking Ms. Bailey and Walter Bailey. He then reportedly tried to strike Ms. Bailey with his vehicle. After missing her, he then allegedly tried to strike Bailey, driving into the front of the home, moving the wall about three feet. Bailey then was reported to have hit the vehicle with a baseball bat, breaking the driver's side window before Anderson left, driving south on U.S. 117 alternate.
