Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a man missing from his home in Wheathampstead in Hertfordshire.

He is believed to be wearing a light brown coloured anorak, dark blue trousers, opened-toe sandals and brown socks. He may also be wearing a dark coloured flat cap.

Police say he's likely to be confused and disorientated. They're asking residents in Wheathampstead and surrounding villages to keep a look out for Mr Lomax and also to check gardens and out buildings.

Parvez Sabeil, 28, pleaded guilty to two counts of Section 20 wounding at Cambridge Crown Court.

They relate to attacks at about 12.30pm on July 9 last year in Cambridge Avenue, Peterborough, when Sabeil stabbed two members of the public, a 25-year-old man and then a 46-year-old man.

Sabeil had just bought a large kitchen knife and had got out of a taxi at the road's junction with Lincoln Road when he stabbed the 25-year-old pedestrian several times in the chest and back.

The victim ran away and Sabeil attacked the older man, a cyclist, who was crossing the road, stabbing him in the chest and back.

Sabeil, of Alexandra Road, Peterborough, was arrested at about 2pm the same day. The victim's injuries were serious but not life threatening and both men recovered.

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth said he was satisfied the hospital order, with a restriction under Section 41 of the Mental Health Act, was appropriate given the seriousness of Sabeil's offences and his psychological condition. He will not be released until he is deemed not to be a risk to the public.

"I hope this outcome brings some comfort for the victims, who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"They know that Sabeil will not be release until he is no longer a risk to members of the public."
