A convicted rapist from Lincoln who was wanted on recall to prison after a fourth time on the run has been arrested by police.
William Clawson, 28, was sentenced to eight weeks in prison after being arrested on December 20 last year for a breach of notification. He was released from prison in mid-January.
Lincolnshire Police recently asked for assistance in locating Clawson on February 4 as he was wanted back in prison.
He was arrested on Queen Elizabeth Road in the Ermine area of Lincoln on Sunday, February 7. He was recalled to prison in relation to a public order offence.
Lincolnshire Police said: “There was a good media and public response to our wanted appeal and officers conducted a number of address checks which ultimately meant that they were successful in effecting his arrest.”
Clawson, was sentenced to seven years in prison for the rape of a woman in Lincoln back in 2011.
Police issued a wanted appeal on December 11 last year after Clawson, who has previously been described as a serious danger danger to women, failed to comply with a court order. He was later found on December 20.
