Police believe that he is in the Paulsgrove area.

He is 6ft 1in tall, with short brown hair and blue eyes.

Detective Inspector Martin Chudley said: ‘Scott was released by the court with strict bail conditions. He has breached these conditions and therefore needs to be detained so that this can be addressed by the court.

‘We also need to speak to Scott in relation to a number of other investigations including a public order offence and criminal damage.

‘If you see Scott or know where he is, please do not approach him, but contact us as soon as possible.’

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 quoting 44160285416 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
