Greenville police are asking for the public's help in tracking down an armed convicted felon who ran from them last weekend.
Kentraye Barnes took off from officers Sunday afternoon after they found a .38 caliber revolver in his waistband.
Police say they got a call of an armed man in the area of West Third and Cadillac streets around 4:45 p.m. An officer spotted Barnes on Davis Street. They say Barnes is a convicted felon who is known to carry firearms.
