AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) – Aurora police are looking for a man who evaded arrest during a barricade situation on Thursday night.

Forty-two-year-old Damien Romaine Moore is wanted for first-degree assault and false imprisonment related to a domestic violence incident.

Aurora police said they attempted to resolve the incident peacefully, giving multiple commands for Moore to surrender. The SWAT team searched the home using a drone, robot and finally a police dog, but couldn’t find anyone inside.

According to police, Moore was confirmed to be inside the home as a perimeter was being set up, but officers couldn’t find him in their search efforts.
