Niagara Regional Police are continuing to look for a local wanted man. 

Kenneth William Hunter is wanted after an incident that took place in Niagara Falls last week. 

On Wednesday a NRP officer and cruiser were purposely struck by a vehicle.  

The suspect fled the scene, leading the officers on a short pursuit that was abandoned out of concern for public safety. 

Police believe Hunter is being provided sanctuary in order to evade his arrest.  

They're reminding the public that anyone assisting Hunter to evade police should be aware that they may be placing themselves in a position of criminal jeopardy.

Police are asking anyone with information to give them a call and encouraging Hunter to contact legal counsel and arrange for a peaceful surrender.
