Tariq Javed child rapist
Police are hunting a convicted sex offender who fled court moments before jurors found him guilty of raping a child.
Tariq Javed absconded from Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester on 26 February while jurors were deliberating.
He was found guilty in his absence of eight counts of sexual activity with a child under the age 13.
The 37-year-old, of Rusholme, is known to have links to Stockport and Manchester.
Detective Inspector Ian Cottrell said: "Javed has been convicted of incredibly serious offences committed against children.
"He is thought to be a flight risk and warnings have been put in place at ports and airports to ensure he does not escape the country, but faces punishment for his atrocious crime.
"I would like to make very clear that anyone found to be sheltering Javed will face arrest and prosecution."
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
