Tauranga Police are appealing for information about a man who failed to appear in court.

James Alexander Cooper was due to appear in Tauranga District Court on Tuesday to face one count of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

The 23-year-old has a warrant for his arrest for failing to appear, says a police spokesperson.

“He should not be approached. Any sightings of this man should be reported to police.”

He is believed to have links to both the Tauranga and Hamilton areas.

People with information about his whereabouts are asked to contact Tauranga Police on 07 577 4300.

Alternatively, information can be left anonymously via the Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 line.
