Daniel Peter Mohar, 26, of Edwards Lane in Chapel Hill, is charged with simple assault, assault by strangulation and assault with a deadly weapon.

Anyone with information on Mohar's whereabouts should call Durham police investigators at 919-560-4935, extension 29415 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

    Dan Mohar is a PSYCHOPATH who needs to spend the rest of him life behind bars. He will kill somebody some day if he hasn't already.

    OMG... This guy worked for me a few years ago. He's a nutjob, and DEFINITELY has anger management issues! I fired him as well, and am thankful he didn't try to strangle me!

    Wonder where this happened?

    I THINK THE BEST WAY TO FIRE SOMEONE IS TO CALL THEM BEFORE THEY COME TO WORK, UNLESS ITS A RESULT OF SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED ON THE SPOT...

    dar, I read it wrong, my bad. ;p he's charged on 3 counts of assult. I've been up all night studying all these words seem to be colliding with each other.

    Excuse me!!!! did I just read that right? So, is WRAL saying that strangulation is a simple crime???? Not if he kills somebody.. Oh, my goodness. lol

    My statement about Friday was from the movie Office Space ... but it has some validity. As for the reason he got terminated? Well, that is a privacy issue. Ah, but we wouldn't even know this much about his private life if he hadn't lashed out.
