Each week we show five wanted fugitives on the Wall and feature one of them. In an effort to keep our local communities safe, police want to get these fugitives off the streets.
Monday, October 31, Featured Fugitive: Harold SCALES
The Metropolitan Police Department is seeking the public’s help to find Harold Scales who allegedly stabbed a pedestrian late at night.
“Harold Scales is responsible for a very violent attack here in the District,” said Dustin Sternbeck, Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson. “As he was passing an individual on the sidewalk, he then proceeds to turn around and strike him with an object which we now know was a knife. He caused a pretty significant laceration to the back of the neck.”
Police say Scales is 34 years old, 5’ 8”, and 165 pounds. He is wanted for Assault With a Dangerous Weapon.
If you have information on Scales, the District of Columbia’s Metropolitan Police Department asks you to call the department’s tip line at 202-727-9099 or send a text to 50411.
ABC7 ON YOUR SIDE always asks if you have information on any of the cases you contact the investigating law enforcement agency. However, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
