Nottinghanshire Police are hunting Jamil Shane Miah (pictured) in connection with a serious assault in Mansfield in September 2012.
Miah (26) is also suspected of being involved in a bout of disorder in Derbyshire in the same month, during which a man received a knife wound to the neck.
He is believed to be living in the Mansfield area.
Assistant Chief Constable Simon Torr, who champions the Alliance Against Violence campaign, said: “We will be continuing to take a strong approach in tackling criminal behaviour and in particular violent crime as we approach the end of the year.”
If you have any information please phone police on 101.
