    BEDFORD, Va. (WSET) -- The Bedford Police Department said it's looking for a man wanted on several charges including malicious wounding.

    Police said officers were called to Pinecrest Avenue in Bedford around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 27 for a 'disturbance.'

    Mark Hanson Elliott is wanted for malicious wounding, abduction, grand larceny of vehicle, preventing use of 911, and sexual battery. Police said further charges are pending.

    Police said Elliott and the victim know each other, but they weren't able to provide details on what happened.

    They also said there is no danger to the public, but they believe Elliott is a danger "to the scene," meaning they believe he will try to come back.

    The best option, police said, would be for Elliott to turn himself in.

    If you see Elliott, call 911 immediately.
