Hamilton Police (HPS) say they’re seeking a man tied to an assault investigation in the city that dates back to February.

Investigators did not reveal the nature of the incident but said that it occurred in the east Hamilton area and that suspect is not likely in the city anymore.

“With these wanted fugitive releases we do not get into the details as to protect victims should certain cases involve domestic charges,” Const. Krista-Lee Ernst told Global News in an E-mail.
