State sheriffs are looking for a 39-year-old man who fled from deputies on Ala Moana Boulevard as they were about to arrest him this morning for a parole violation.
Bronson Gouveia met with his parole officer for a routine check-in when the officer called the Sheriff Warrants Section to have him arrested for violating parole, the Department of Public Safety said in a news release.
Gouveia then fled as deputy sheriffs arrived.
He ignored their order to stop, got into a waiting car and fled.
Gouiveia is described as 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighing 272 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
He has several tattoos, including one on his neck and one under his left eye.
He has a history of violent crime convictions including first-degree attempted assault, first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery, as well as weapons possession and drug charges.
He faces revocation of parole.
The Hawaii Paroling Authority has issued a warrant for his arrest.
Gouveia was last seen heading in the Diamond Head direction on Ala Moana Boulevard in a black BMW, license plate number RGX502.
Anyone seeing Gouveia is asked to call police at 911 or Sheriff Dispatch at 586-1352.
