Police seek suspect accused of strangling pregnant ex-girlfriend Sunday

Print Article

MOSES LAKE - Police are looking for a Moses Lake man who allegedly strangled his ex-girlfriend, who was 9-months pregnant with his child, during an altercation Sunday over another child shared by the victim and suspect.

Josh Adams, 25, who had a no contact order placed against him by the victim, had allegedly been to a nearby property to do his laundry when he visited the North Grape Drive residence of the 24-year-old mother of his children.

Adams allegedly tried to convince the victim to let him take their child for the day and blocked the doorway when she refused. According to police, Adams then allegedly pushed her to the floor and began to strangle her. When she attempted to call 911, Adams allegedly stole the phone and fled the scene.

Police, aided by a K9 officer, were unable to locate Adams. He is being sought on charges of second-degree domestic violence assault, interfering with reporting of a crime and violation of a no-contact order.

Police responded to a similar case on earlier Sunday East Hill Avenue, where Isaac Espinoza, age unspecified, reportedly choked and assaulted his wife of 20 years over a domestic dispute before fleeing the scene.
