A 30-year-old man has been arrested after he was wanted by police for breaching his sex offender notification.
Ali was convicted of sexual touching in 2012, and now is wanted by police once again after last being seen at Royal Blackburn Hospital yesterday (13th of January).
Earlier this week Insp Dave Clark, of Lancashire Police, said, ‘Ali is wanted by police after breaching the terms of his sex offender prevention order.
‘I would urge anyone who sees him not to approach him but instead contact police.
‘Furthermore I would encourage him, if he sees this appeal, to come forward and contact officers.’
Lancashire Police have now released an update to say thank you to the public.
A spokesperson for Lancashire police Said, ‘Following a public appeal for information, he was arrested in the Blackburn area yesterday and is in custody.
Thank you to those people who shared our earlier appeal.’
