Police said incidents happened in the spring and Afolabi was released on bail while he awaited trial. He has since disappeared and investigators from the Domestic Conflict Unit are trying to find him.
Because the charges are domestic, police said they won’t release more information about the alleged offences to protect the privacy of the victim.
Police said Afolabi is 5 feet 9 inches tall with a slim build, brown eyes and black hair. Afolabi had recently been released on bail pending a trial. Investigators have been working to locate Afolabi, but have not succeeded.
Anyone with information on Afolabi’s whereabouts is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
