Police ask for help finding domestic violence perpetrator

Baltimore Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man they say stabbed the mother of his child nearly to death last month.

Christopher Troy Goode, 26, stabbed the woman 10 times in her neck with a butcher knife on the night of Sept. 12, according to police. One witness told police the woman ran toward her, bleeding profusely, and screamed "Help he's trying to kill me" before collapsing on the steps of her home in the 2200 block of Sidney Avenue in the Westport neighborhood.

Goode is also wanted in Ohio for an incident earlier in September in which he allegedly broke into the home of his wife, who had a protective order against him, and held her hostage while he beat her.

Baltimore police dubbed Goode their latest "Public Enemy No. 1," a recent campaign to bring certain cases of violence to the attention of the public.

"He is a violent, dangerous, vicious predator who needs to be taken off the streets now," said Lt. Ronda McCoy, commander of the family crimes unit.

McCoy said Goode is "always armed" and is known to frequent Cherry Hill and other areas in South Baltimore.

Those with information are asked to call 911 or 1-866-7Lockup.
