Suffolk, Va. - Police say Marvin Jacobs has been able to avoid officers for a year and half.

Police say Jacobs was on Beech St. near East Washington St. when he saw two people he knew.

Jacobs is facing five charges, including malicious wounding and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Police say they need your help to make an arrest.

"We rely on the community to help us in over 90 percent of these cases because they're our eyes and ears out there," said Cpt. Janet Brandsasse with Suffolk Police.
