     According to the sheriff, deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call early Sunday morning after a neighbor reported a disturbance on County Road 1073 in rural Baxter County. The home was damaged indicating a fight or altercation had taken place.
     A woman, whom deputies found locked in a bathroom when they arrived at the home, stated Hamilton was one of five people staying at the residence. She said he woke her in the night to tell her the electricity was off and attacked her with a metal pipe before she was able to get away from him. He then reportedly attacked the three other people at the residence. One victim was transported by ambulance to the Baxter Regional Medical Center, the others went to the hospital in private vehicles.
     Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Michael David Hamilton is asked to call the Baxter County Sheriff's Department at (870) 425-7000.
