Chandler police are looking for a man with a history of sexual assault and violence, after he failed to turn himself in to police to face harassment charges yesterday.
Trevor Mark Mazak, a 33-year-old registered sex offender, is wanted on charges of aggravated harassment and stalking after a female acquaintance filed a complaint with Chandler police.
Chandler Police spokesman Sergeant Joe Favazzo says police became nervous when Mazak failed to surrender to cops yesterday, as he had indicated he would.
"He has a history of harassing female acquaintances," Favazzo says. "He sent the victim in this case something like 435 text messages in one day, saying things like 'if i see you with another guy, i'll kill you.'"

Mazak, previously convicted of the attempted sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl, has told people he refuses to go back to jail and has threatened to shoot himself, police say.
"He's not playing with a full deck," Favazzo says of Mazak.
Favazzo says police have no idea where Mazak is and have exhausted all of their leads.
Mazak is considered armed and dangerous, and anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is encouraged to call Chandler police Detective Chris Perez at 480-782-4433 or the Chandler Police Department at 480-782-4130.
