Albert Hughes, 21, of Alvis Avenue was found guilty of actual bodily harm and assault by beating at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, April 25, following an assault on December 11 last year in Pier Avenue, Clacton, in which one of the men needed hospital treatment for head injuries.

He was due to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court on Tuesday, May 23, prompting Essex Police to put out a warrant for his arrest.

More than five months later police say that attempts to arrest him had been unsuccessful and are asking for anyone who may have seen him to contact them.

He is white, around 5ft 9in and has links with Jaywick and Clacton.
