Police are hunting a violent criminal who is on the run and has connections in South Yorkshire.

Ashley Fulcher, 24, was originally jailed for 40 months for an offence of grievous bodily harm in January 2012.

He was released on licence in May 2013, but has been recalled to prison after failing to attend meetings with probation and demonstrating bad behaviour.

As part of the ongoing enquiry to locate him, his face was broadcast on national TV on BBC One’s Crimewatch Roadshow programme on Tuesday, June 9, but he remains at large.

Fulcher has connections in the South Yorkshire and Selby areas.

Sergeant Matt Foale, of Selby Police, said: “Ashley, you must surely have realised by now that we will not stop looking for you. Every day you remain at large only makes the inevitable outcome worse for yourself when we catch up with you. It’s time to do the right thing, and hand yourself in.”

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Ashley Fulcher is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police – dial 101, press option 1 and pass information to the force control room.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
