Man wanted in connection with Morecambe rape

Police are appealing for information about the whereabouts of a 26 year old man who they need to speak with in connection with the rape of a 16 year old girl in Morecambe in October 2011.

Hama-Amin Karim, an Iraqi national was arrested by police following a complaint of rape by a Lancaster teenager at an address on Coltsfoot Walk in Morecambe on 22nd October 2011.

He was released on police bail pending further enquires but failed to answer his bail and has been wanted by police since December 2011.

Hama-Amin Karim was found to have entered the UK illegally. He does not have any permission to be in the UK at present and therefore is also wanted by the Home Office.

Detective Sergeant Mark Stephens from Lancaster and Morecambe CID said: “Karim could be anywhere in the country, although it is possible he may also have travelled abroad. If he is in the UK he is likely to be working in a barbers shop.

“I would appeal to anybody with any information about his whereabouts to contact Lancashire Police 101.”

People with information can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
