Anthony Cameron Kendall shouldn't be hard to spot, especially with the weather heating up. He has a tattoo of the moon and a star on his face and a scorpion on his neck.

The 24-year-old Kendall is wanted by the District of Columbia on warrants for escaping from a halfway house and for assault with intent to kill while using a knife. He's also wanted on charges of violating his parole for assault on a police officer.

Kendall's been on the run for at least six months, said Supervisory Inspector James Werking, of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.

"Kendall is a dangerous fugitive who has been very elusive," Werking said.

Kendall's rap sheet date backs to 2007 and includes arrests on charges of carrying a pistol without a license, assaulting a member of a police or fire department (three arrests), unauthorized use of a vehicle and domestic violence.

Kendall is listed as 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds. In addition to the ink drawn on his face and neck, he also has tattoos on his arm.

He is known to hang out in the Columbia Heights area in Northwest Washington.

Anyone with information regarding Kendall's whereabouts is urged to call Detective Travis Barton or the U.S. Marshals Service at 301-489-1717 or 800-336-0102.

Since 2008, The Examiner's "Most Wanted" feature has led directly to the capture or surrender of 52 fugitives. Among them were a man wanted in a 1997 cold-case slaying, a teenager accused of killing a 16-year-old boy and stuffing his body in a closet, and a key figure in one of the largest federal contracting scams in United States history.

The Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, run by the U.S. Marshals Service, is composed of 30 federal, state and local agencies from Baltimore to Norfolk. The unit has captured more than 33,000 wanted fugitives since its creation in 2004.
