Micheal Kane McRAE, 33, is actively avoiding Police and two warrants to arrest have been issued for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Police are also seeking to locate an associate of McRae, April Lorna Marie JACKSON. JACKSON is 20 years old and is required to arrest as she is in breach of her bail conditions and is due to next reappear on 12 June in the Masterton District Court.
Detective Peter Donaldson says "We have information that he may be in the Wellington, Manawatu or Hawke's Bay areas. Police in these areas are aware we are looking for McRae and are on the look out for him."
"My only message to McRae is that it is only a matter of time before we catch up with him so he might is well front up now. I would warn anyone assisting him to evade Police that it is likely they will also face charges. Police have been regularly calling in on people known to him and this will continue until he is located."
Police advise that McRAE is known to carry weapons and should not be approached by the public. Anyone seeing McRAE or JACKSON should contact their local Police station immediately.
