Domestic abuse campaign: updated most wanted list and message to offenders in advance of weekend of football fever
Main article content
Police are issuing a strong message to domestic abuse offenders in advance of the Euro quarter-finals starting tonight: As our results demonstrate, if you commit domestic abuse you could end up missing the match as we will leave no stone unturned to locate and arrest you.
Since the start of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship, police have been issuing photos of the county’s most wanted offenders. As a result, four have been arrested and one has surrendered directly to court. Information has been received that two more have left the country.
Officers continue to work through a list of those wanted for domestic abuse, stalking and harassment and believe the following men could have information which could help them with their inquiries:
Top row, left to right
Ross Richards, aged 33, with links to Kettering – Ref no 20000069262
Riu Nunes, aged 26, has links to Corby – Ref no 20000570422
Bottom row, left to right
Dawid Graczyk, aged 30, from the Kettering area – Ref no 21000246265
Machi O’Brien, aged 26, has links to Wellingborough - Ref no 20000596539
These men should not be approached. Anyone who sees any of these individuals or knows of their whereabouts should call Northamptonshire Police on 101, quoting the relevant reference number listed above.
Detective Inspector Mark Hopkinson from the Force’s Domestic Abuse Team (DAT), said: “Tackling domestic abuse is a matter of priority for this Force – regardless of whether there’s a football championship taking place. However, incidents are known to increase during major football tournaments and that’s why the DAT has been set the task of arresting the county’s most wanted offenders.
“As the results show, this approach is working as several of those featured in the past two weeks have been handing themselves in at police stations across the county. I urge those on this latest list to do the same.
“Some have expressed discomfort about having their photos circulated in the media – I’d say to these people, that’s all the more reason to hand yourself in to help us with our investigation so your details can be removed from the list.”
