Police continue appeal for wanted Lincoln man after Facebook taunts

This story is over

Lincolnshire Police have branded the actions of a wanted man from Lincoln as “no laughing matter” after he took to social media to mock to the force.

Aaron Bee, 22, is wanted in connection with assault and domestic violence in the Lincoln area on October 10 and an assault on October 14. He is still being sought by officers.

Since the launch of a police appeal for his whereabouts, alongside two other suspected offenders, Aaron has posted a number of comments and photographs on Facebook.

He also took a ‘selfie’ outside Lincoln Police Station this week to taunt the force (pictured above).

Nikki Mayo, of Lincoln CID, said: “We are aware of his activity on social media and are actively following up a number of leads and lines of enquiry, and have a number of officers searching for him. His most recent behaviour will not deter us from our job in any way.

“I would remind members of the public that the offences for which Mr Bee is a suspect are of the utmost seriousness.

“Tackling domestic abuse and violence is a priority for the force and we have a duty to protect not only the victims involved but also the wider public as a whole.

“I would urge people to remember that the victims involved here have been deeply affected and for them this is quite simply not a laughing matter.

“They want to see the person responsible brought to justice, as does Lincolnshire Police. I would urge anyone who knows of Mr Bee’s whereabouts to inform us as soon as possible so that matters can be dealt with.

“Alternatively, if Mr Bee would like to come forward and attend Lincoln Police Station we would be more than happy to receive him.

“In addition, I would also like to point out to anyone who may be actively seeking to obstruct the police and this enquiry, or anyone who is helping Mr Bee, that they may themselves be committing an offence and could be liable to prosecution.

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
