Detectives hunting a “dangerous” man who is wanted for a violent attack in Milton Keynes have launched a fresh appeal to find him, warning he could be in Northampton.
Police are reappealing for the public’s help to trace Darren Levy, aged 31, who is wanted in connection with an assault in which a woman suffered a fractured cheekbone.
Levy, formally of Northampton, is wanted for also assaulting a man in the Walnut Tree area of Milton Keynes.
Police say he is considered to pose a danger to the public and is also wanted on recall to prison.
Officers launched a bid to find Levy in June, but are yet to find him.
A spokesman said: “It is thought Levy could be in the Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire or West Midlands area. “
He is wanted after the man and woman were injured in the assault outside Tesco Express, in Walnut Tree, at about 1.20pm on Friday, September 7, last year.
The attacker followed the victims into Studley Knapp where he assaulted the pair using a metal dog chain.
Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Matt Darnell, from Northamptonshire Police CID, said: “We are carrying out a number of enquiries in order to trace Darren Levy, who we believe does pose a danger to the public.
“He is wanted in connection with two serious assaults, one of which involved a makeshift weapon.
“I would advise the public not to approach Levy, but if anyone sees him or knows of his whereabouts, please call us as soon as possible.”
Anyone who sees Levy is asked to ring 999, or if people have information about his whereabouts they are asked to call Thames Valley Police’s 24-hour Enquiry Centre on 101 or to ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
