EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - We have added three new faces to the wanted board - two of which are wanted in Tyler.

The first one we want to tell you about is Lester Lee Owens, and he's wanted for a violent attack on a woman in Tyler. According to Tyler police, Owens is charged with assault family violence after injuring the woman that he lived with. Owens allegedly came home drunk one night, got into a fight with the woman, then lifted her up, and dropped her onto a glass table. He left her there, and she needed stitches to sew up a gash in her head. Owens has been convicted of assault before. He's known to frequent the Pool Hall on Morris Street.

If you have any idea where Lester Owens could be, e-mail your tip to, or call 903-531-1000.

Another man police are trying to find is Edward Earl Thomas. Thomas is wanted for indecent exposure after allegedly going to several homes, many on Houston Street, and exposing himself outside of bedroom windows. He's also been seen on West Charnwood Street.

If you know where he is, call Tyler police at 903-531-1000, or e-mail us your tip at

Our final stop was in Wood County, with another assault case. This is Whitney Michelle Berry.

The Wood County sheriff's department said that Whitney stabbed her father late last year. He was taken to the emergency room, and needed several stitches, but Whitney is still on the loose. She's also wanted for forgery.

If you have any information on Whitney, call Wood County Crimestoppers at 903-763-2274.

Go to your phone or your computer right now, and help put these people behind bars.
