CROYDON police have released a third batch of pictures of people they are hunting in the run up to Christmas.

The five men are all wanted either on recall to prison or for failing to appear at court.

This week's gallery is the final released by the Met as part of a three-week push to try to find wanted people in the borough.

The men are:

Jaroslaw Rutkowski, 28, wanted for failing to show up at Croydon Magistrates' Court after being charged with common assault. Wanted since March 30 and has links to Croydon town centre and South Croydon.

Nasir Ahmad, 22, wanted for failing to appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court after being charged with actual bodily harm. Wanted since August 11 and has links to Thornton Heath.

Albert Gregory, 45 wanted on recall to prison after being convicted of robbery. Wanted since September 25 and has links to Thornton Heath and Wandsworth.

Faraz Khan, 38, failed to appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court after being charged with common assault. Wanted since April 17 and has links to the Thornton Heath area.

Sam Curran, 21, failed to appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court after being charged with shoplifting and theft. Wanted since October 22 and has links to Croydon town centre and South Croydon.

Detective Sergeant Jonathan Kent, in charge of Croydon's wanted offender's unit said:

"The work that we do in trying to track down wanted people can sometimes take us months, if not years, but we'll do all we can to pursue those wanted by the courts or prisons in order to bring them to justice.

He also pointed out the value of public appeals, referring to a case where a social club owner was jailed on Friday, December 5 after a "ferocious" knife attack on his business partner in London Road seven years ago.

He said: "Last week, we saw a man who was jailed nearly seven years after he had violently assaulted and stabbed his victim back in December 2007.

"He fled the country almost immediately, but through the work of detectives in my team here, we tracked him down to living near Amsterdam in the Netherlands and he was arrested last year by Dutch police on a European arrest warrant.

"It was a fantastic effort by the officers involved and I know that the victim was very pleased that he got to see his attacker brought to justice after all these years.

"I hope results like this encourage the public to help us with our appeals and would ask anyone with information on this week's most-wanted to get in touch with us."

Anyone with information about the men should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
