A man who was serving a sentence for domestic violence against his girlfriend walked away from a treatment facility only to allegedly attack her again.

Authorities are searching for 38-year-old Christopher Fore who is now on the run in Sumner County.

He is considered very dangerous.

Over the weekend, Fore allegedly walked away from a Mid-State rehab facility, found his old girlfriend and attacked her.

“He escaped. He told me I was going to do what he wanted me to do or he was going to kill me,” the victim said.

Court documents indicate that in the summer of 2012, Fore beat her severely.

“He pushed me out of the car. He was going to run over me. I got up; he ripped me back in the car by my hair. He ripped my shirt off. He pounded my head multiple times,” she explained to Nashville's News 2 Investigates.

According to reports, Fore was sentenced in November, but allowed to spend the last 28 days of his sentence in a half-way house.

The victim said that he needed rehab.

“I'm pretty mad there was not more stipulations to that. He should have gotten more time than what he got,” she said.

This is not the first time Fore has walked away. In the summer of 2012 when the first incident occurred, he was taken to Sumner Regional Medical Center and while he was there, he escaped.

“He is a very dangerous person. He doesn't care who he hurts. Right now I have fear that he is going to come and kill me because he has told me multiple times he is going to kill me,” the victim expressed.

Multiple sources said Fore was placed at the Buffalo Valley Treatment Center in Hoenwald, however officials at the facility would not confirm or deny that a person by that name was a patient.

The victim credits her survival to her father. She said she pulled into her dad's driveway and screamed for help. That's when her father reportedly came out with a gun and scared Fore away.

If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Christopher Fore, call the Sumner County Sheriff's office immediately at 615-452-2616.
