A violent fugitive from Montana spotted in several Bay Area cities last week was captured Friday night in Portland, Ore., an FBI spokesman say.

Kevin Anthony Briggs, who was wanted for alleged assaults on a woman and a police officer in Bozeman, Mont., was the subject of an intensive manhunt involving the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service this week.

He had been on the run since Feb. 1, when he escaped from police custody.

Original Story as Follows: 

The FBI and U.S. Marshals Service are asking for the public's help in tracking down a man accused of assaulting a woman and police officer who was last seen in the Bay area.

Keven Anthony Briggs-- who is described by authorities as a "violent fugitive"-- is wanted in Montana for aggravated assault, sexual assault, assault on a police officer and escape; offences committed in the city of Bozeman. He is also wanted on federal charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

FBI officials say Briggs was seen in San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland last week.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says the 28-year-old Briggs is believed to have bought a one-way bus ticket from Missoula, Mont., to Spokane, Wa., on Feb. 1.  From there, investigators believe he traveled to the Bay Area, she said. 

"He may be traveling to Oregon or Washington State as well as Mexico while staying in homeless shelters while earning money to travel and should be considered armed and dangerous and suicidal," an FBI alert states.  "Briggs also has violent tendencies."

Briggs has used aliases, including Aimee MacIntire, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Briggs, Kevin A. Briggs, Timothy McCoy, James Meisner and James Zenon Meisner. 

Here's a detailed description of the wanted man from the FBI: 

Briggs is described to be a white male, 5’5” to 5’7” and 120 to 150 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. 

He has a sunburst tattoo around his right nipple, a tattoo in his armpit and a tattoo on his lower lip. He has a double "snake bite" piercing on his bottom lip. 

He also has a bellybutton piercing and pierced ears. 
Briggs was last wearing gray sweatpants, a dark-colored hooded jacket or parka, black shoes and a dark baseball cap.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the man is urged to contact their nearest FBI office or dial 911. The FBI can be reached 24 hours a day at 415-553-7400 in the San Francisco area.  All calls are confidential. Tips can also be submitted at: tips.fbi.gov.

Here's a detailed description of the wanted man from the FBI: "He has a sunburst tattoo around his right nipple", From what I see in the pictures, the sunburst is around his left nipple. - OK
