Wanted: Johnathan Rojko

CRIME FILES rojko, johnathan 5-16SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Springfield Police say Jonathan Rojka is a violent guy with a criminal past, but they didn’t learn about him until recently.

“There are over a dozen warrants out of Chicopee, but the warrant we’re looking for him on out of Springfield happened on April 28th , a couple of weeks ago,” says Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney. “He was in the parking lot here at 37 Oak Street in Indian Orchard and his girlfriend was with him — his girlfriend is eight months pregnant.”

Police say the two were loading up a U-Haul truck when they got into an argument over moving.

“He choked her, he punched her and to add insult to injury, he took the U-Haul truck that she had rented and took off — haven’t seen it since,” says Delaney.

Rojka is now wanted on assault and battery charges, as well as larceny of a motor vehicle.

As investigators continued to look into his past, they learned that he’s been actively committing another crime, as well.

“They saw that he failed to register as a sex offender, so there’s also a warrant for him for that,” says Delaney. “We’re hoping somebody recognizes him, he’s considered dangerous.”

Delaney adds, “Anybody who knows where he is, please give us a call.”

If you see Johnathan Rojko call 9-1-1, or you can send police an anonymous tip.  Just text it to CRIMES or 2-7-4-6-3-7 and in the message type SOLVE and your tip.
