Gardaí at Henry St in Limerick are seeking help in tracing convicted sex offender, Mian Mujahid Ali Shahid (commonly known as Mian Shahid) following a request for assistance from the UK Police.
It is believed Mian, who is a 19 year old Pakistani national, travelled to Ireland from Scotland earlier this year. He was last seen in the Foynes areas of Limerick on August 11 last.
Mian Shahid was convicted (in his absence) at Stafford Crown Court on April 13 last of two counts of sexual assault of a female (18 years of age). A warrant was issued for his arrest on April 14. On May 20, at the same court, he was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment for this offence, also in his absence.
“Following the receipt of a European arrest warrant, gardaí have carried out extensive enquires but have failed to establish his current whereabouts. Our enquiries would indicate that he is still in this jurisdiction. Gardaí continue to liaise closely with Police Scotland and the Staffordshire Police in relation to this matter,” a spokesman said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Henry Street Garda Station on 061 212400 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111
