Wanted - Shane Astal

Name: Shane Astal
Date of birth: 09/21/1989
Age: 28
Location: Hyde

Officers are trying to trace a wanted man from Tameside.


Shane Astal (21/09/1989), also known as Shane Thorogood, from Hyde is wanted on recall to prison after failing to appear at court for a hearing in connection with a section 18 assault.


He was originally jailed for a separate section 18 assault but was released on license.


Officers working to trace him believe he is actively evading arrest and encourage anyone with information relating to him or anyone who sees him to make contact.


Anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
