He was on 60 months probation, which he recently violated.
Dogantsis has a history of violent behavior.
He could be in the heart of Cape Coral.

He has several tattoos, including the phrase “Don’t be afraid” inked on his back.

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers said he violated a few weeks ago.
Wakeman’s record has 17 reservations. If caught, he will be held without restraint.
