Police make fresh appeal over Shropshire rape
Police investigating the rape of a teenage girl launched a fresh appeal for information on a busker who is a suspect in the case.
Thomas Anthony Fleet, 22, is believed to be living in southern England and making money on the street playing an acoustic guitar and a penny whistle.
He is wanted for questioning over a rape which happened at a house in a Shropshire village last October. An appeal for information was made on the BBC Crimewatch programme last night.
Detective Inspector Sarah Wagstaff of West Mercia Police said: "We believe he is living rough, travelling around the country and using a cover story that he is hiding from police over a burglary."
She added: "We believe he is making his way around by various means, using public transport, hitch-hiking and by foot, raising money through busking, playing an acoustic guitar and a penny whistle."
Police say he has links to various parts of the country, including London, Surrey, Wiltshire, Dorset, Avon and Somerset, Devon and Cornwall and South Wales.
He is described as white, 5ft 4in tall with straight brown hair. He may be carrying a distinctive Peter Storm 75-litre green and black rucksack.
