OFFICERS are appealing for information to trace a teenager wanted in connection with a rape.
Detectives urgently want to speak to 17-year-old Reuben Schultz following an incident in Gloucester on Friday (16 September).
Schultz is also wanted in connection with criminal damage and a serious assault in Alfred Street in the city at around 10pm on the same night as the rape.
Schultz is described as 5ft 8in tall, medium build, with blue eyes and dark brown hair.
He has links to Gloucester, Bristol and Weston-super-Mare.
Officers have been pursuing numerous lines of enquiry to find Schultz and would now like to appeal to the public for help.
Detective Sergeant Faye Satchwell-Bennett said: “This individual represents a danger to others, so we would please ask members of the public not to approach him and to instead contact police immediately.
“I also appeal directly to Reuben Schultz himself to do the right thing and hand himself in to us.”
Anyone who knows where Schultz is, or sees him, is asked to call 999 and quote incident 476 of 16 September.
