The King County Sheriff’s Office is searching for Michael Dennis Gormley, who has been accused of violating a felony domestic violence protection order in Federal Way.

A $75,000 warrant has been issued for the arrest of Gormley, 46, who is believed to be homeless and living out of a white minivan in South King County or Pierce County, according to a post by David Rose of Q13 News.

Charging documents say Gormley violated the protection order June 28 by punching a Federal Way woman in the face. Gormley is also accused of following and threatening to kill the victim if he catches her with someone else. In another interaction July 1, Gormley is accused of spitting in her face.

Gormley has been described as a bald white male with hazel eyes who stands 6-feet-2-inches tall and weighs 300 pounds. He also has six prior restraining orders as well as prior convictions for assault, reckless driving, theft and possession of burglary tools.

Washington Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to Gormley’s arrest. Call the anonymous hotline at 800-222-8477.
