Friday, July 12, 2019

Have you seen Matthew Parkinson? He is wanted by police on recall to prison and in connection with a sexual assault investigation. 

Parkinson, 26, who has links to the Preston, Bamber Bridge and Cumbria areas, is believed to have breached his release licence terms in May after breaking a curfew. He had been convicted of battery, theft and assault in November.

Parkinson is also wanted by police in connection with an investigation into an alleged sexual assault in Bamber Bridge in June.

The 26-year-old is described as white, 5ft 10in tall, of medium build with blue eyes and short brown hair.

Detectives are urging people not to approach him but instead contact police immediately if you know where he is.

Det Con Catherine Thomas, of Lancashire Police, said: “Parkinson presents a risk to the public and could be violent if approached.

“We would urge anyone who knows where he is to come forward and contact police.

“Furthermore I would ask Parkinson, if he sees this appeal, to speak to us immediately.”
