North Yorkshire Police Warning Not To Approach Absconded Prisoner
7:52am 21st May 2014
Damien Burns, 39, originally from Scarborough, North Yorkshire, and Dean Jackson, 27, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, absconded from the open prison during the evening of Monday 19 May 2014.
Burns was serving an indeterminate sentence since 2007, for a knifepoint robbery in Scarborough.
Although their whereabouts are unknown, or if they are still in company together, officers are warning people not to approach them.
Inspector Andy Everitt, who is coordinating enquiries in North Yorkshire, said: “As Burns is originally from Scarborough, it is possible that he may return to the town.
“I believe that he is a dangerous man and if you see him, do not approach him. Instead contact the police immediately and tell us where he is.”
Anyone who can locate Damien Burns should contact North Yorkshire Police straight away on 101. Select option 1 and pass the information to the Force Control Room.
