The Salt Lake City FBI office is requesting assistance in the apprehension of a fugitive from Montana who may be traveling to California.

Kevin Anthony Briggs, a convicted felon and registered sex offender, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the assaults of a female and a police officer in Bozeman, Mont., a wanted poster from the FBI states.

A woman called the Bozeman Police Department the morning of Feb. 1 to report an assault and that the assailant had tried to strangle her before leaving. Police located Briggs shortly after. He allegedly resisted arrest and hit an officer in the face. After being transferred to the Law and Justice Center in Bozeman, he escaped custody.

That evening, it is believed he traveled to Missoula, Mont., where he bought a one-way bus ticket to Spokane, Wash. He has not been seen since.

A warrant was obtained Feb. 7 for the federal unlawful flight to avoid persecution based on charges of aggravated assault, attempted rape, assault on a peace officer and escape.

Briggs, a university student studying chemical engineering, had been on probation for previous convictions of rape, aggravated kidnapping, escape and burglary in Lewis and Clark County in Montana from 2004 at the time of the alleged assault.

Briggs has been known to use the aliases of Kevin Bacon, Kevin Briggs, Kevin A. Briggs, Aimee MacIntire, Timothy McCoy, James Meismer and James Zenon Meismer. He has multiple dates of birth, including Jan. 17, 1986; Jan. 13, 1986; Jan. 18, 1986; and April 30, 1989. He is described as a white male between 5 feet, 5 inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 120 to 150 pounds, brown hair, hazel eyes. He has a sunburst tattoo around his right nipple, a tattoo in his armpit and a tattoo on his lower lip. He has a double “snake bite” piercing on his lower lip as well as pierced ears and a pierced belly button. He may attempt to alter his appearance by growing his hair and dying it black. He was last seen wearing gray sweatpants, a dark-colored hooded jacket or parka, black shoes and a dark baseball cap.

He may attempt to travel to Washington, Oregon, California or Mexico. He may be staying in homeless shelters while trying to earn money to continue traveling. He has previously worked at a hotel and as a laborer for a landscaping company.

Briggs is considered armed and dangerous, suicidal and a flight risk. He is known to have violent tendencies.

Anyone with information concerning Briggs is asked to contact the local FBI office or nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
