ST. LOUIS – Authorities from Oklahoma and the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department are asking for the public’s help in locating two fugitives wanted on various child abuse charges.
According to Officer Michelle Woodling, a St. Louis police spokeswoman, a “failure to appear” warrant was issued in Jackson County, Oklahoma on June 10 for Hakim Moore and Robin Alexander. The pair were scheduled to appear in court to face charges of child abuse, child neglect, and enabling child neglect.
