Police in Riverside are on the lookout for Steven Sampson, who escaped from custody in Wisconsin January 30.

Sampson, who was serving time for stalking, was on a work release program when he got away.

He is from Riverside and police believe he may return because he has family there.

Last year he became physically violent with his girlfriend and injured her when she tried to call police.
