Investigators are asking for help to find a teenager wanted on two counts of attempted second-degree murder. The Northfield Police wrote on Sunday that he’s Aleksander Cherkasov, 18.

He got into an argument shortly after 3:30 p.m. Saturday with two female acquaintances. Cherkasov is accused of hitting one of the two and trying to run her over with his car.

The acquaintances drove away, but police wrote that Cherkasov ran their car off of Turkey Hill Road and rammed it over a steep embankment. The two females escaped from the car before it went over the edge.

Cherkasov’s car has been found, but Cherkasov himself was still at large Sunday night. If you have any information about where he might be, the Northfield Police are asking you to call them at (802) 485-9181.
