An appeal has been launched to find a known sex offender who is thought to be in Preston.


Preston Police say Obaid Aslam, 36, who was convicted of two counts of indecent exposure in January last year, has not notified them of his current address.

Detective Constable Dave Hanna of the Sex Offenders Management Unit said: “Aslam is in breach of his notification requirements which he knows he should adhere to.

“I would urge anyone who has seen him or knows where he is to contact us as soon as possible.

“I would also ask Aslam, if he sees this appeal, to hand himself into the nearest police station.”

Aslam is described as Asian, 5’10”, of medium build with short dark hair and may have facial hair.

He is known to have links to Preston and Luton.

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting incident reference LC-20160818-1197. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555111 or online at
