UPDATE: Mr. Burton has turned himself in on his arrest warrants.
The Dalton Police Department is asking the public for information on the whereabouts of David Anthony Burton, who is wanted on warrants for aggravated assault, kidnapping, and violation of the Georgia Gang Act. Burton, 19 years old, has a last known address of 186 Terrapin Way in Dalton.
On the afternoon of November 18, a teenage juvenile victim told police that Burton and two unidentified males approached him and threatened him with a gun, telling him to get into his car. The victim refused, and Burton grabbed him and pulled him into the car. The victim managed to escape out the car’s window before Burton drove away. Investigators believe this incident was related to a fight that occurred the day before this incident.
Burton is a Hispanic male, 5’11” tall, weighing approximately 210 pounds. He has close-cropped dark hair and several tattoos. He has a tattoo of the name “Belinda” in cursive writing across the right side of his neck, and a tattoo of red lips on the left side of his neck. He has “David 1973-2000 RIP” tattooed on his left forearm. He has a tattoo of a woman’s face on the front of his left shoulder. He also has other tattoos.
