Fox 4 has been combing through police reports from Fort Myers and Cape Coral police departments, and the stories appear to paint a violent picture of Wade Wilson.

We found Fort Myers Police responded to a domestic incident between Wade Wilson and his girlfriend around 8:48 a.m. on October 7th.

The victim told police Wilson showed up to her place of business in a black Nissan Versa. He had been trying to call her all morning after a dispute at an area lounge.

The reports explains how the victim tried to calm Wilson down; however, he became aggressive and violent and tried dragging her into his vehicle.

The report states the victim suffered road rash, scrapped knees, busted lips, and a cut elbow.

The report also explains how Wilson spent one month in jail in July for sexual battery and abuse towards his girlfriend; however, she dropped the charges.

Several hours later, on the same day, Cape Coral Police responded to a call from someone saying a male named Wade Wilson stated he had stabbed someone and was covered in blood.

But when police arrived, Wilson ran.

Police were unable to locate Wilson at that time, but later the same day was able to find him.

Cape Coral Police received a tip that Wilson was hiding in a house on NE 1st Terrace in Cape Coral. After contacting Wilson inside the home, he asked the police to first speak with his father.

Once he exited the home, he was placed under arrest.

After further investigation, Cape Coral Police observed the bathroom window had been pried open and pulled out.

Wilson was transported to the lee county jail.

In addition to these charges of battery and burglary Wilson now faces, we know he also has faced charges in Palm Beach county for violent acts.

Investigators are not drawing a connection from Wilson to Diane Ruiz and Kristine Melton, however, Cape Coral Police say the person of interest in the Ruiz and Melton cases was driving a black Nissan Versa. Wilson was also seen driving a similar car during the alleged battery and burglary.
