A man wanted on suspicion of breaching a court order and two counts of criminal damage has been remanded into custody.

Hubert Locke, aged 31, was remanded into custody at Worcester Magistrates Court today, charged with breaching a non-molestation order and two counts of criminal damage at three separate addresses on consecutive days between Tuesday March 23 and Thursday March 25.

Locke was arrested by South Worcestershire Police at an address in Northfield Street, Worcester, after a media appeal, including his photograph, was made on Thursday April 1.

He was considered dangerous to his orginal female victim but not to the general public.

When he appeared at the same court on Monday March 1 on suspicion of harassment, he was bailed to reappear on Saturday April 10 – on the conditions that he did not approach his original victim, lived and slept at an address in Wych Road, Droitwich and be subject to a curfew between 7pm and 7am.

He was also released on the understanding that he attend Droitwich Police Station between 12pm and 2pm hours every day - except Thursday - and visit specified Worcester addresses only by appointment.

Police had emphasised to Locke’s friends and relatives that if they helped him in any way to stay at large they faced arrest and prosecution.

In an un-connected move, police are still searching for Paul Sheward, aged 22, of Windermere Drive, who faces automatic prison recall for breaching legal restrictions in relation to possible racially aggravated assault and criminal damage on Sunday January 17.

On Monday February 22, Worcester Police issued ‘wanted’ leaflets for Sheward, but although there have been possible sightings, he remains at large.

His friends and relatives have also been warned that if they are known to aid him in any way they face arrest and prosecution.

Ch. Insp. Sharon Gibbons, head of operational policing in South Worcestershire, said: “Apprehending criminals who have breached restrictions imposed by the courts is part and parcel of day-to-day policing.

“We, however, never recommend that members of the public approach known or suspected criminals. Anyone, therefore, with information about the whereabouts of Sheward should call South Worcestershire Police on 0300 333 3000 or Crimestoppers – anonymously – on 0800 555 111. All calls are always treated in the strictest confidence.”
