TCHULA, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Holmes county woman is recovering after being dragged alongside a vehicle then run over Friday.

The man wanted for the crime is still on the loose after a police chase.

Alonzo Lewis with the Tchula Police Department said 24-year-old Katie Martin of Belzoni suffered severe injuries to her feet, legs and arms.

It happened just before 1 p.m. on Martin Luther King Drive.

Martin told investigators that she and John Caesar, the father of her three children, began arguing in Greenwood, and she wanted to leave him.

Martin said Caesar went to a Tchula store then grabbed her arm as she reached inside the vehicle to get her purse.

She said the 42-years-old pulled off and dragged her 20 to 30 feet.

Martin then fell when he let her arm go and a back wheel ran over her left leg.

Hours later Caesar, who is also from Belzoni, was being chased by police when he abandoned the vehicle in a bean field in Marcella in Holmes County and fled.

Martin was transported to Holmes County hospital.

Caesar is wanted for aggravated domestic violence.

If you know where John Caesar is call the Tchula Police Department at 662-235-4910.
