Merseyside Police is appealing for the public’s help in tracing an 19-year-old man who they would like to speak to in connection with a firearms incident and an assault.

Officers believe that Sean David Jones, who is originally from the Seaforth area, could have important information that could assist them with their investigations into a firearms incident in Bootle on Thursday, August 20 and an assault in Netherton on Saturday, September 5.

Jones is described as being white, of proportional build, 5ft 9in tall with short dark brown hair and brown eyes.

Officers would ask Jones, or anyone who knows of his whereabouts, to contact officers on 0151 777 3014 or via the non-emergency 101 number.
