One of Harris County's 56 Most Wanted Fugitives is off the streets, thanks to a collaborative law enforcement effort targeting accused domestic violence offenders.

Christopher Matthew Blake, 29, was arrested Friday in Kingwood on a domestic violence charge. He was among 31 suspects taken into custody across Harris County during a crackdown led by the The Texas Attorney General's Office.

Blake, who was added to Harris County's Most Wanted Fugitives list in 2013, is accused of getting into a fight with, and pointing a gun at, his alleged victim. His criminal history includes possession of a controlled substance, driving while his license was invalid, and possession of marijuana.

Blake's arrest was made through a partnership by the Texas Attorney General's Office, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Harris County Sheriff's Office and the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

"Domestic violence not only affects the survivor and their family, but society as a whole. I want to commend the Texas Attorney General's Office for assisting the District Attorney's Office in apprehending these suspects," Harris County DA Devon Anderson said. "It is important that we send a message to abusers that there are serious consequences for their actions."

Anyone who is a victim of domestic violence is encouraged to call our The Harris County District Attorney's Office's Family Criminal Law Division at 713-755-5888.
