POLICE are on the hunt for a man accused of maliciously wounding woman.

Liam Mitchell, 30, of Dean Street in Keighley, has been charged with wounding or inflicting grievous bodily hard without intent.

He was supposed to appear at Skipton Magistrates' Court on May 6 but did not turn up.

He failed to attend the adjourned date of May 20 at the same court and so a warrant for his arrest without bail was issued.

The case relates to July 11 last year.

It is alleged Mitchell unlawfully and maliciously attacked a woman at Venue Sports & Music Bar, in Skipton.

The court issued a warrant for the 30-year-old's arrest because the offence can be punishable with imprisonment for an adult (aged 18 or above).
