Police are appealing for help to trace a man who failed to appear in court after being charged with fraud offences against a 99-year-old man.

In February 2014, a man called at a house on Worsely Road, Salford and asked for a drink.

The victim went inside and made the man a glass of lemonade. When he turned around realised he had come inside his house. After he had gone he realised his phone had gone.

The offender returned on two other occasions and stole cash.

Martin Christopher Lawrence 29/12/1989 was charged with burglary, theft from person and two counts of fraud but failed to attened Manchester magistrates’ court on 5 December 2014.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

He has links to Salford, Bury and Cheetham Hill.

Detective Sergeant Roger Smethurst, said: “Martin Lawrence is charged with some very serious fraud offences against an elderly, vulnerable man.

“He has failed to attend court and we are now appealing for the public’s help to locate him.

“If you have seen him or know where he is please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 5360, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
