POLICE have issued a wanted man appeal after a baseball bat-wielding burglar disappeared before his trial.

Latvian Madars Celins, aged 25, was sentenced to 12 years in his absence after being found guilty of aggravated burglary in Hexthorpe, Doncaster, in March 2011.

Celins, of Thorne Road, Wheatley, caused severe injuries to the occupant of the house when he broke his leg in two places with the bat and the complainant spent six months in hospital.

Two other Latvian men who did attend their trial were convicted of burglary and received five years each.
