Watsonville police are asking for help to find an armed robbery suspect who they said has a violent criminal history.
Police are looking for 33-year-old Hilario Contreras, who has an active warrant out for his arrest.
Officers said Contreras was caught on camera using a knife to rob a Motel 6 on Silver Leaf Drive in September. Nobody was injured.
Because police said Contreras has a violent history, they ask residents to call 911 and not approach him.
