Police have set up a perimeter in the 1200-block of north Brown in west Springfield looking for a man wanted for a parole violation.
Police tried to use a taser to stop him, but he got away.
Cops aren’t sure if he’s armed, but say he’s known to be violent and did reach into his waistband.
You’ll notice a lot of police activity in the area.
