A man accused of kidnapping and assaulting a woman while serving probation for beating his now ex-wife has been placed on the state police's Most Wanted fugitives list.
Kevin J. Hamel, 49, is wanted for kidnapping, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, domestic assault and battery, and vandalism in a March 30 attack in Townsend that left the victim with multiple injuries, Massachusetts State Police said.
Townsend Police received a 911 call in March from a woman who said she was being assaulted by Hamel and trying to run from him, police said.
"Officers subsequently determined that Hamel had held the woman against her will and violently assaulted her, causing numerous injuries," police said.
Police sought an arrest warrant against Hamel but have not been able to find him. He has been on the run for more than four months and is actively avoiding officers, police said.
Hamel is white, 6 feet tall and weighs about 225 pounds. He has brown and gray hair and blue eyes. He has ties to Townsend and the surrounding communities of Fitchburg, Ayer and Acton as well as New Hampshire.
Hamel has an extensive criminal history and has been convicted of stalking, kidnapping and unlawful possession of a gun and ammunition. Eight restraining orders have taken out against him by several different victims and he has been convicted of violating some of them, police said.
Hamel was convicted in 2011 of multiple charges including assault and kidnapping his wife and sentenced to five years in state prison followed by 2 1/2 years in jail and 15 years of probation, according to the Fitchburg Sentinel & Enterprise.
Anyone who sees Hamel, or who has information on his whereabouts, is asked to immediately call 911 or the State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section at 1-800-527-8873.
