According to a release from the Butler County Sheriff's Office, 24-year-old Robert Sparks is on the run. He is accused of hitting a man in the head with a bottle near a residence on Johnson Street on Wednesday in Union Springs. Sparks then allegedly forced his way into the home, tied the man up and robbed him.

Sparks is also accused of burglarizing a home in the Aberfoil community on Tuesday, September 18.
