A Stoke-on-Trent man is being sought by Staffordshire Police for assault, failing to appear at court and recall to prison after breaching the terms of his licence.
Michael Goodwin (33) was jailed in August 2011 for 42 months for robbery. He was subsequently released from prison in December 2012 but has since breached his licence conditions.
He was also due to appear before magistrates at Newcastle on Friday 24 January charged with common assault in Hanley on Friday 20 December 2013 but he failed to turn up.
It is believed that Goodwin could be in the Stoke-on-Trent, Cheadle and Stafford areas where he has extensive connections.
Chief Inspector Adrian Roberts, Stoke-on-Trent North Local Policing Team Commander, said: “Our officers are carrying out extensive inquiries to trace and arrest Goodwin and are appealing for assistance from the public.
“Anyone who knows of his whereabouts should contact Staffordshire Police on 101.
“Alternatively, they can contact independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
