Posted at 10:57 AM, Apr 05, 2017

Law enforcement officials are searching for 31-year-old Julio Martinez, a.k.a. Juan Carlos Escobar, who pleaded guilty to child endangerment charges but failed to show up for sentencing.

According to his arrest report, Martinez threw a can of hairspray at his girlfriend after the two got into an argument. His girlfriend deflected the can with her hand, causing it to strike a 2-year-old girl in the head and resulting in a laceration.

After he was initially booked at the Clark County Detention Center, officers discovered that Martinez also went by the alias Juan Carlos Escobar and had four outstanding county warrants for his arrest.

Martinez described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 190 pounds, brown eyes, and brown hair.
