Each week we show five wanted fugitives on the Wall and feature one of them. In an effort to keep our local communities safe, police want to get these fugitives off the streets.

Monday, October 24, Featured Fugitive: Setona WHITFIELD

The Metropolitan Police Department is seeking the public’s help to find Setona Whitfield.

“Our suspect Setona Whitfield is wanted for aggravated assault,” says Dustin Sternbeck, Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson. “The victim in this case, another female, was left at the rear of a building suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.” He added, “We need the public’s help in identifying the whereabouts of this dangerous suspect.”

Police say Whitfield is 26 years old, 5’ 1”, and 205 pounds. She is wanted for Aggravated Assault While Armed.

If you have information on Whitfield, the District of Columbia’s Metropolitan Police Department asks you to call the department’s tip line at 202-727-9099 or send a text to 50411.

ABC7 ON YOUR SIDE always asks if you have information on any of the cases you contact the investigating law enforcement agency. However, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).


Every fugitive on the Wall of Justice is innocent until proven guilty. The aim is to find them. Once arrested, judges and juries can determine innocence or guilt.
