A violent offender from Broadway who was due to appear in court has gone missing.

Hubert Locke, 43 and of Leamington Road, was set to appear in court on Friday, January 21, for a violent offender order.

However, the case had to be adjourned as the defendant's whereabouts are unknown.

Locke was handed a violent offender order in March 2018 which expired March, for causing wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

Since the order was made, Locke has committed a series of further violent offences.

On August 17 2019 Locke breached a non-molestation order and later that year, on December 13, he breached a violent offender order.

In 2020, on October 16, he committed assault which caused actual bodily harm and on the same day committed assault by beating an emergency worker.

Locke is also currently wanted in connection with a suspected involvement in a robbery by knife point on December 16, 2021.
