Police in Rotorua are asking for the public's help to find a man who has breached his bail conditions.
Kainui Parkinson, 39, is facing trial later this year on charges of violence and sexual offending.
He is described as Maori, 187cm tall, and of medium to athletic build. He has a snake tattoo on his lower left leg and a ring tattoo on the middle finger of his left hand.
Police say Mr Parkinson has strong family links to Te Kaha, Whanarua Bay, Tauranga, Whanganui and Palmerston North and it is possible that associates are helping to conceal him.
People are advised not to approach him, but to report any sightings to police.
