Police are trying to track a man wanted on recall to prison.
Harvey Jackson was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm to an officer during a previous arrest attempt and he was released on licence in January.
Avon and Somerset officers carried out a pre-planned operation at 7.45am on Tuesday 4 July in Ashley Road, Bristol, after receiving intelligence about Jackson’s whereabouts. This included armed officers and dog handlers and the road was closed in order to search a block of flats, but the police were unable to locate him.
Today, neighbourhood officers will be patrolling the area to offer reassurance to the local community.
Harvey Jackson is:
- 29 years old
- Described as black, about 6ft 2ins tall
- Of stocky build with black dreadlocked hair
Police are asking anyone with information about Jackson’s whereabouts to call 999 immediately and say he should not be approached. Alternatively Crimestoppers are a charity that can take information anonymously over the phone: 0800 555 111.

He is described as:
- of muscular build
- 6ft 2ins
- with thin cornrow hair.

A 32-year-old Bristol man wanted in connection with an attempted murder and separate serious assault has been arrested in Ireland.
Simeon Langford, from St Paul's, was initially wanted for a breach of his licence but was later linked to the attempted murder of a woman in Wilder Street.
Inquiries showed Langford has travelled to Ireland and a European Arrest Warrant was issued last week. He was arrested in Cork by An Garda Síochána officers.
He appeared before the High Court in Dublin in Friday and has been remanded in custody.
