Police are searching for a Stafford man who has been recalled to prison.
Steven Norman, 35, was jailed in 2000 for 13 years for wounding. He was released in February 2012 but has since breached his licence conditions.
It is believed that Norman could be in the Stafford, Stoke or Wolverhampton areas.
Chief Inspector Paul Trevor said: “Our officers are carrying out extensive inquiries to trace and arrest Norman 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.”
