A man wanted in connection with a violent assault in a pub is believed still to be in York. Detectives want to question Ryan MacLeod, 21.
A man needed stitches to a facial injury after he was attacked by a number of men in the smoking area of the Castle Howard Ox in November.
Detective Inspector Dave Kirby said: “If you are one of the people who is helping MacLeod to avoid the police, when we eventually catch up with him we will take action against you as well."
