FBI: Wanted man may be in Oregon

EUGENE, Ore. - A sex offender who attacked a woman and a police officer before escaping custody may be traveling through Oregon, the FBI said.

Kevin Anthony Briggs, 28, bought a one-way ticket from Missoula, Montana, to Spokane, Washington, on February 1 after escaping police custody in Bozeman, Montana.

He hasn't been seen since.

The FBI said Briggs may be on his way to Mexico via Oregon and California.

He should be considered armed and dangerous, the FBI said.

Briggs is wanted for charges of aggravated assault, attempted sexual intercourse without consent, assault on a peace officer and escape.

On the morning of February 1, 2014, a woman called the Bozeman Police Department to report an assault. She said that her attacker
had attempted to strangle her before he left.

Police contacted Briggs, who resisted arrest and hit an officer in the face, the FBI said.

Briggs later escaped the Law and Justice Center in Bozeman, the FBI said.

At the time of the incident, Briggs was on probation for 2004 convictions of sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated kidnapping, escape and burglary in Lewis and Clark County, Montana.
