BELOIT (WKOW) -- Beloit police are searching for a man who threatened his ex-girlfriend just two weeks after being released from jail on bail.

Police are looking for Vernon Lige, 31, who police say on Monday, Nov. 3, 2017, went to his ex-girlfriend's house and entered the residence with a gun demanding the residents tell him the whereabouts of the victim with the intent to threaten, intimidate, and harm her, police say.

Lige had been released from jail on $500 cash bail Nov. 2 after being arrested for a standoff in Beloit Oct. 11, 2017 on Saint Lawrence Avenue where police say he threatened his girlfriend and also pointed a handgun at his live-in girlfriend’s mother threatening to shoot her.

During this incident two juveniles were also present and at risk. Prior to this Lige had burned property belonging to his live-in girlfriend, police say.
