KSP officials say Conrad held a woman against her will, assaulted her, strangled her multiple times and shot at her as she tried to escape. Police say Conrad was in a relationship with the woman.

According to KSP, authorities met with the woman after she got to the hospital, and her testimony led to police issuing a warrant for Conrad’s arrest.

KSP troopers had requested the public’s help in finding Conrad.

“When we have someone at-large, at this point it’s now a community concern because not only did he do this to someone he supposedly loved, but also could he do something to the public,” KSP Trooper Corey King said.

State troopers say Conrad’s vehicle was found by authorities in McLean County on Saturday.

According to a social media post, Conrad has warrants for attempted murder, strangulation, imprisonment and domestic assault.
