In this week's edition of the Mid-Ohio Valley's Most Wanted we have for you a Parkersburg man, wanted for Brandishing and Battery.

21-year-old Gurmel McDonald is accused of beating up a 14-year-old juvenile at City Park, in October, after a dispute over his girlfriend.

McDonald was never caught after the incident.

Then in April, McDonald allegedly pointed a handgun at another male, after a conflict over his ex-girlfriend, at an apartment on Juliana Street.

Captain Delmas Barker with the Parkersburg Police Department believes McDonald is capable of committing these types of crimes again.

"That put the victim in fear of his safety. We take Brandishing very seriously because if someone pulls a gun out, it makes an implication that they are going to shoot someone, it could always happen, so we take it very seriously," says Captain Barker.

Captain Barker believes McDonald is still in the area.

He has a previous address at the Savage Apartments, on 13th Street.

So, if you have any information on where he could be please call the Parkersburg Police at 304-424-8444.
