Police appeal: Josh Scott

SCARBOROUGH police are appealing for help to track down a wanted man.

Joshua Stephen Scott, of Cross Street, is wanted for recall to prison for breaching the conditions of his release licence.

Scott, 19, was jailed in May last year for two years and four months for assault.

He is described as white, 6ft 4in tall with a medium build and short brown hair.

Insp Tony Quinn, of Scarborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “It is important that people who are released from prison on licence comply with the conditions imposed on them so that everyone can have the confidence that justice has been done.

“I urge anyone who can help to trace Joshua Scott to contact the police straight away.”

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Scott should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, press option two and ask for Scarborough police.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference number 12120079788.
