Police are hunting for a wanted man who has connections to Dorset.

John Henry Bond is wanted in connection with serious harassment and stalking offences.

The 63-year-old pleaded guilty to bombarding his former partner with a string of threatening text messages and phone calls between June 13 and June 21, 2018.

However, he has since failed to appear in court for sentencing and police have issued a warrant for his arrest.

Bond has connections to Weymouth, Wimborne, Bournemouth and Ferndown.

He also has connections to East and West Sussex, Salisbury in Wiltshire and Ringwood in Hampshire.

Sussex Police are urging anyone who sees him or might know where he could be to call 101 – or 999 in an emergency – quoting occurrence number 1285 of 13/06.
