Police swoop to arrest paedophile who escaped court



Have your say

A paedophile from Hemel Hempstead who was wanted after absconding from court has been arrested by police late on Friday night after just over a day on the run.

Ian McDonald, 39, appeared at St Albans Crown Court yesterday (Thursday) charged with indecent assault against a three-year-old child.

He made off from the court before the jury had reached its verdict with the help of his 29-year-old carer Hayley Smith, also of The Heights, Hemel, in his mobility car.
