Police Look For Wanted Man

Suffolk police are trying to find a man who they say is one of their most wanted.

William Cassidy is being looked for in connection with a robbery in Ipswich in February 2009. He and another man test-drove an Audi Quattro with the supposed intention of buying, but then stole the vehicle by dragging the owner out of the car, before driving it away.

Cassidy was arrested and charged and pleaded guilty to the offence at Ipswich Crown Court in November 2010, however, he failed to appear for sentencing after the judge indicated he would face going to prison. A warrant for his arrest was issued in January 2011.

The 32-year-old man is described as white, approximately 5’2 tall, skinny build with a small face and drawn features. At the time he was arrested he also had a faint moustache.

His last known address was in Hayes, Middlesex but he does have links within Ipswich and we believe he still frequents here, as well as other areas of Suffolk.

Anyone with information in connection with the whereabouts of William Cassidy is urged to contact Suffolk Police on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 55511.
