A wanted man with distinctive scars and tattoos is thought to be in Taunton or Wellington.
Glen Squire, from Somerset, is wanted on recall to prison.
The 28-year-old had previously been sentenced for assaulting an emergency worker and obstructing police.
Avon and Somerset Police issued an appeal on Wednesday evening (November 25), urging members of the public to call 999 if they see him.
Squire is believed to be in the Taunton or Wellington areas, but also has links with Bridgwater and Torquay in Devon.
He is described as a white man of medium build, with brown hair.
He is said to have a scar on his left hand and left forearm, and the names Emily and Abigale tattooed on his wrist.
The police appeal warned: “If you see Squire, do not approach him, instead call 999 and give reference number 5220258797.
“Alternatively, if you know of his potential whereabouts, call 101.”
