The FBI is searching for a fugitive from Montana who may have traveled to Spokane within the last few weeks.
Kevin Anthony Briggs is wanted for aggravated assault, attempted sexual intercourse without consent, assault on a peace officer, and escape. On February 1, a woman called the Bozeman Police Department to report an assault and that her attacker attempted to strangle her.
Police located Briggs and, during his arrest, he allegedly attempted to resist and hit an officer in the face. After being taken to the Law and Justice Center in Bozeman Briggs escaped custody.
Later that evening, he traveled to Missoula where he bought a one-way ticket to Spokane and has not been seen or heard from since.
Information developed during the investigation suggests he could travel through Washington or to Oregon, California, and possibly Mexico.
When he was arrested on February 1, Briggs was a convicted felon and registered sex offender who was on probation for a 2004 conviction for sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated kidnapping, escape, and burglary in Lewis and Clark County, Montana.
