EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) – A search was launched in the El Cajon area Tuesday for a man sought by a fugitive task force.
San Diego County sheriff's officials told ABC 10News deputies were called to assist a group of U.S. Marshals in the 1100 block of Persimmon Avenue just before 9 a.m.
The U.S Marshals Service said members of a fugitive task force went to a home to executive an arrest warrant for 33-year-old Nofel Noel Suleyman over an alleged federal probation violation.
However, Suleyman was nowhere to be found, prompting a search.
Suleyman is described by authorities as an Iraqi native with brown hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing black pants and a red jacket.
A photo of Suleyman was not made available.
Additional information regarding the arrest warrant was not immediately released.
