“This was an extremely violent assault and as such, Shaw has tried to avoid arrest ever since.

“He is also wanted in relation to a breach of a court order and two counts of theft.

“We have a number of officers dedicated to finding Shaw, who are out looking for him at every opportunity and he will no doubt be arrested soon.

“I’d like to ask Shaw to hand himself in if he sees this, or if his friends and family see this, please ask him to come forward and speak to police.

“If you have seen or heard from Shaw, please contact us on 101 quoting incident number 472 of 30 December 2016.

“Please do not approach Shaw if you see him but instead call us straight away. Always call 999 in an emergency and if you wish to pass information about Shaw’s whereabouts anonymously, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
