Whitehall police are searching for a man who allegedly entered his ex-wife’s Ural Avenue residence May 26 and held her and their juvenile daughter at knifepoint.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for Arthur G. McClain, III, 49.

McClain has no recent, verifiable address, reports said.

He is charged with aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony; kidnapping, a second-degree felony; and charges of domestic violence and aggravated menacing.

McClain has a prior record that includes domestic violence and resisting arrest, police said.

McClain allegedly forced entry into his ex-wife’s residence around 5:15 p.m. May 26 and briefly held her and their 11-year-old daughter at knifepoint, said Whitehall Sgt. Dan Kelso.

The victims fled from the residence after a few minutes, Kelso said.
