The Clark County District Attorney's Office is looking for a fugitive described as dangerous with a long history of violence.

56-year-old David Dean Ringewold pleaded guilty last April to assault with a deadly weapon but failed to show up for sentencing.

"He brandished a knife at I think it was a girlfriend, threatened to kill her, a lot of alcohol involved, binge drinking," said DA Steve Wolfson.

Ringewold was arrested in Henderson nearly two years ago but he has a long criminal history.

"This guy has five prior felony convictions and 35 prior misdemeanor convictions," Wolfson said. "... And they date back 20 or 30 years and most of them are crimes of violence, assault, assault and battery, domestic violence, two or three different assault convictions so this man has a history of violence."

Wolfson believes that extensive criminal record is probably why Ringewold did not show up for sentencing. He is looking at up to six years in prison.

Anyone with information on Ringewold is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
