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.
