On both occasions he was armed with a knife when he targeted his victims.

He escaped from HP Sudbury in Derbyshire after being allowed out on its day release scheme, which helps inmates prepare for life on the outside at the end of their sentences.

He was due to attend his place of work in Rutland Road, Sheffield, on Thursday, May 16 and was expected back at the prison by 8.30pm that night but failed to return.
