MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- U.S. Marshals are looking for 21-year-old Roberto Bruce.

While an inmate, U.S. Marshals say Bruce couldn't keep his fists to himself.  Several of his offenses involve battery to other inmates and staff.

U.S. Marshals say Bruce once used a billiards ball to hit another inmate in the head.  Another time, he beat an inmate to the point the man lost teeth.  In another instance, U.S. Marshals say Bruce punched a staff member in the head and spit in his face.

On the outside, U.S. Marshals say Bruce belongs to the Latin King Gang.  He recently broke parole by going to Chicago because he claimed the gang threatened his family.  Bruce, in turn, threatened his parole agent.

Bruce has been missing since April.  He could be staying with family on Milwaukee's south side.

Bruce is 5'8'' and weighs 206 lbs.  Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call U.S. Marshals at 414-297-3707.

    Because the clear violent history, even during his jail term, clearly shows he was ready for parole. Look, I know our jails are over-crowded. But now this guy is loose. Thanks, Justice system. I don’t care if you have to put three inmates to a jail cell or re-enact the firing squad. Stop releasing these people back into the community. Such a waste of tax-dollars.
