A MAN with links to Salisbury and Ringwood is being sought by police in connection with serious harassment and stalking offences.

John Henry Bond, 63, pleaded guilty to bombarding his former partner with a string of threatening text messages and phone calls between June 13 and 21.

But, Sussex Police say he has since failed to appear in court for sentencing and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Bond has connections to East and West Sussex, as well as Poole, Ferndown, Bournemouth, Weymouth and Wimbourne in Dorset, Salisbury in Wiltshire and Ringwood in Hampshire.

Anyone who sees him or knows where he could be, report it online or call 101 – or 999 in an emergency – quoting serial 1285 of 13/06.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
