He is considered armed and risky.

Lynn Washington is described as a 40-year-old man with brown hair and brown eyes, is 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs about 180 pounds and has tattoos on his neck, left arm, right arm and chest. "He has a history of abuse with myself and other women", Roby wrote in the order. Police said Washington knew about the order.
