Man absconds from court during hearing

APPEAL: Kerol Farquharson

POLICE ARE appealing for information after a man absconded from court during a hearing.

Kerol Farquharson appeared at Thames Magistrates' Court on a charge of possessing an offensive weapon yesterday (April 17) when the incident happened.

Whilst in the dock, the 20-year-old was told that he was going to be remanded in custody to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on a later date.

On hearing this, he tried to jump out of the dock.

A struggle with a Serco custody officer resulted in Farquharson assaulting the officer and escaping from the court.

Farquharson is described as a 20-year-old mixed-race male, 5ft 10ins tall and of slim build. He has a scar across his left cheek.

Members of the public are advised not to approach Farquharson should they see him and should contact the Offender Management Unit at Bethnal Green Police Station immediately on 020 8217 3848. Alternatively call 101.
