DENVER – Police are looking for a fugitive convicted of attempted murder and assault who cut off his ankle monitor and remains at large.

Francisco Javier Perez, 28, was found guilty on Dec. 1 of four counts of attempted first-degree murder–extreme indifference, one count of first-degree assault – extreme indifference, and three counts of attempted first-degree assault – extreme indifference stemming from a September 2015 incident.
