Police hunt wanted York man

Police in York are appealing to the public for the help to locate a man wanted for recall to prison.

24-year-old Craig Mulgrew, Wains Road in York, is wanted for recall as he has breached the terms of his release licence and is believed to have committed further offences.

Mulgrew was sentenced to four years and nine months imprisonment at York Crown Court in July 2009, for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

He was then released in June 2011.

He is white, 5ft 8in tall, with a medium build and brown hair.

Although Mulgrew's exact whereabouts are not known, it is believed that he is still in the York area.

Police officers do not believe that Mulgrew is a danger to the public. However, anyone who does see him is advised not to approach him, but to contact the police straight away.

"Craig if you see or hear this appeal, I strongly advise you to hand yourself in immediately. You are only making matters worse for yourself by avoiding justice.

We will not stop the efforts to trace you until you are back in custody.

If you know where Mulgrew is, I urge you to contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away.

Anyone who may be shielding Mulgrew is not helping him and may even be committing criminal offences in doing so.

We have already been checking addresses in the city to which we believe Mulgrew has links and will continue to do so until he is back behind bars."
