Det Insp Clement Goodwin said: “My message to Jamal is: we won’t stop looking for you, so contact us and arrange to hand yourself in.”

He added: “This involves individuals who are known to one another, so I can reassure residents that we don’t believe there is a risk to the wider community.”

Anyone who sees Mr McBean is urged not to approach him and to call police.

A second man arrested for affray has been released under investigation.
