Kitsap County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a Bremerton man wanted for vehicle ramming and domestic assault.

Flaviano D. Basaliza, 35, is suspected of chasing two victims with his car and assaulting his wife April 10, said Deputy Scott Wilson, Kitsap Sheriff's spokesman.

Basaliza is described as a dark-haired Asian male, 5 feet and 5 inches in height, weighing 170 pounds.Wilson said Basaliza, also known as 'Jhun,' allegedly saw his estranged wife in a vehicle with a male friend and chased them in his own vehicle.

Basaliza pushed the victim's vehicle off the road in the 5400 block of Almira Drive Northeast, and his wife got out of her car and Basaliza forced her into his vehicle, Wilson said.

"After that, detectives are trying to suss out what happened exactly," Wilson said.

The woman got out of Basaliza's car sometime later and was able to call a friend to pick her up, Wilson said. Officers reported she was found with minor injuries.

Wilson said Basaliza has a history of domestic violence charges.

"He is not unknown to us," Wilson said.

Kitsap County District Court issued an arrest warrant for Basaliza for domestic violence assault and set his bond at $50,000.
