Craig Whittle was one of two men charged over the serious assault in Rossington.

Police said the charges related to an alleged serious assault at Grange Road, New Rossington on 24 February, which left a 40-year-old man with serious injuries.

Last week police launched an appeal to find Whittle as part of their investigation and urged members of the public not to approach him and instead call 999.

Officers were called to the street at around 8.50am on Febuary 24 after reports of a man who was found seriously injured in the street.
