The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to be on the lookout for a “dangerous” Lincolnton man wanted for incest and rape, a press release said.
Detectives are searching for Gary Michael McNabb, 45, of 1831 Highway 150 West. He’s accused of raping a family member on May 16, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Due to the suspect’s background in martial arts and statements to law enforcement officers that he is anti-government and won’t be apprehended, deputies have considered him a threat to public safety.
McNabb is described as a white male with a receding hairline, who’s 5-foot-10 and weighing 135 pounds.
Deputies believe he has family in Gaston County and South Carolina.
Anyone with information on McNabb or his whereabouts is asked to call 911, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at (704) 732-9050, Crime Stoppers at (704) 736-8909, the Communications Center at (704) 735-8202 or the nearest law enforcement agency.
The only charge listed on McNabb’s record on the North Carolina Department of Correction website is a misdemeanor conviction in Gaston County for breaking and entering in 1986.
