Police are hunting a fugitive they believe is armed and
dangerous in the state's west.
A search is underway for Peter James Rowley, 35, who is on
the run after he evaded police about 3pm yesterday by fleeing
into bush off the Castlereagh Highway, near Coonamble.
Rowley is wanted in relation to numerous serious domestic
violence offences and has access to at least two firearms,
police said in a statement.
They warned the public not to approach Rowley, who's
described as caucasian, 170cm tall, and solidly built.
He also has a mullet style haircut, many tattoos, and sports
a long red goatee beard, police said.
He was last seen wearing a dark coloured shirt, with his
right arm bandaged.
