Police launch hunt for wanted Doncaster man

South Yorkshire Police have launched a manhunt for an inmate who has absconded from HMP Hatfield in Doncaster.

Bernie Ward, 34, is currently serving a six year, eight month sentence for attempted robbery.

He was jailed in 2018 after he attacked a 59-year-old Sheffield man in his own home during a break-in.

He was charged with attempted robbery and grievous bodily harm in connection with the incident.

On Wednesday 26 August, Ward left the open prison and failed to return.

The inmate is originally from Sheffield and has links across the city, particularly to Parson Cross.

He is described as 5ft 8ins tall and of slim build.

Police are asking anyone who sees Ward to call 999.

A spokesperson for the force added:

“If you have any information as to where he might be, please call 101.

“Alternatively, you can remain completely anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. The incident number to quote is 858 of 26 August.”
