Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Syracuse Police are asking for you to be On The Lookout for a man who has been arrested 80 times before.

51-year-old Albert Steen of Syracuse has the following warrants out for his arrest:
  • Assault in the 1st Degree, a class B felony
  • Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 3rd degree, a class D felony
  • Resisting Arrest and Obstructing Governmental Administration, both misdemeanors
  • Two open container warrants
Since 1986, Steen has been arrested 80 times, that includes:
  • 11 felonies
  • 34 misdemeanors
  • 11 bench warrants for failing to show up to court
  • Arrested 6 times for Resisting Arrest, the most recent on July 1, 2013
Syracuse Police say Steen tried to stop an alleged drug bust a few weeks ago.

“By closing and locking the door and when police did get into the building, they fought with him, now even at 51-years-old, he's still fighting with police,” said Sergeant, John Savage with the Syracuse Police Department.

Three days later, police say Steen stabbed a man in the stomach outside of the Oxford Street Inn, when the man refused to give him a cigarette.

The victim was rushed to the hospital and ended up losing a kidney and needing 69 staples on his stomach

“In this instance, a completely unprovoked attack because a man had refused him a cigarette and it could have just as easily been someone on the street who refused him change or a ride, or whatever,” Savage explained.

Police say Steen could be in a number of places since he's been a drifter, living with friends and in shelters.

Steen is listed at:
  • 5 feet-7 inches
  • 165 pounds
  • medium build
  • brown eyes
  • black hair
If you know where Steen is, you are urged to call the Syracuse Police Warrant Squad at (315) 442-5230.

All calls will remain confidential.
