Police are asking for the public’s help to find a Scarborough man who is wanted for failing to attend court.

John Henry Blake, 29, was charged with assault and possessing a prohibited weapon.

He was given conditional bail after initial appearances at court, but has failed to return to court when required and has also breached a community order.

A warrant was issued by the court for his arrest in June.

Officers have carried out extensive enquiries in the local area to locate Blake but he remains outstanding.

Police are now appealing for the public’s help to find him and are asking anyone who knows of his current whereabouts or has any information about his movements, to please contact them.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the Force Control Room.
