State Police in Carbon Co. are still looking for a man they say took off into the woods to escape police.

Holzer is wanted by police for allegedly physically assaulting his girlfriend in a vehicle while driving from Weissport to East Penn Twp. that morning.
Anyone with information on Holzer is asked to call State Police/Lehighton at 610-377-4270.
