Police in Lancashire are appealing for information from the Ayrshire public about a 23-year-old man who is wanted in connection with allegations of rape, criminal damage, assault and stalking.

Owen Buck is alleged to have committed these crimes between November 2021 and January.

Buck's address is listed as Andrew Street in Preston, south of the border, however, police say he has links to North Ayrshire, including Irvine, Stevenston and Dalry.

Cops are of the belief that Owen is currently in Scotland.

Buck is described as white, 5ft 8in tall, of medium build with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

Trainee detective constable Joe Harper, of Lancashire Police, said: “Buck is wanted for a number of serious offences.

“Our enquiries suggest he is in Scotland and I would encourage people to share our appeal.

“If you can help with our investigation, please come forward.”

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or email 4807@lancashire.police.uk quoting log 0788 of February 7.
