U.S. marshals are looking for a violent fugitive whose arrest history has been all over the map.

Twenty-six-year-old Perry Haywood is wanted by three separate area agencies on three separate felony warrants.

He's wanted by U.S. marshals for violating the conditions of his probation following a drug conviction. He's wanted in Maryland for violating the conditions of his parole for an armed carjacking conviction. And he's wanted by the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office for failing to appear in court to answer robbery charges.

Authorities are asking for the public's help in locating him before he strikes again.

"Haywood is a bad guy who has had three bites at the apple now and has failed to do what the authorities have asked each time. It's come time for him to be back to jail," said Supervisory Inspector Matt Burke, of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. "We'd like the readers' help in making that happen."

Haywood has a history of arrests on a variety of charges, including assault, resisting arrest, burglary and drugs. He's had arrests in D.C., Prince George's County and Anne Arundel County.

Haywood is listed at 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds with a tattoo on his upper left arm. He has worked in the past as a mover and an office worker and has been known to hang out in the District, Hyattsville, Landover and in Georgia.

Anyone with information should contact the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force at 301-489-1717.

Since 2008, The Examiner's "Most Wanted" feature has led directly to the capture or surrender of 50 people, including murderers, kidnappers, sex offenders and con artists. At least nine were wanted in a killing or had previously been convicted of a homicide.
