Police appeal for help to trace wanted man
9:33am Thursday 19th December 2013 in News
POLICE in York are urging a wanted man to hand himself in as they appeal for the public’s help to find him.
Steven Thompson, 48, is wanted for failing to appear at York Magistrates’ Court on Monday 2 December, charged with assault.
The appearance relates to an incident at a pub on Malton Road, York, on Tuesday 1 October, when a 49-year-old woman was assaulted.
Thompson is described as white, 6ft 1in tall with a medium build and brown hair.
He is believed to be in the York area.
Detective Inspector Dave Kirby, of York CID, said: “I urge anyone who knows where Thompson is to contact the police straight away.
“Officers have already made visits to address where we believe Thompson has connections. These visits will continue until he is back in custody.
“Anyone who may be shielding Thompson needs to know that they are not helping him, they only making things worse and may be committing offences themselves. If this is the case they may well be prosecuted.”
Anyone who can help locate Steven Thompson should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for option 1 and pass the details to the Force Control Room. Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
