Salford assault suspect has breached bail

A Salford Jewish man accused of sexual assault against children is suspected of breaching his bail conditions to avoid his upcoming trial.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that Todros Grynhaus, 47, from Higher Broughton, has failed to answer strict bail conditions he was placed under following being charged with historic sexual abuse in December.

At a magistrate's preliminary hearing in January, Mr Grynhaus pleaded not guilty to six counts of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault against three minors, who were all under 15 at the time.

Mr Gynhaus was ordered to surrender his passport for fear he might flee before his trial, expected to take place later this year. But a previous condition to report to a Salford police station every Wednesday was relaxed to allow him to visit his family in London.

Manchester police said: "He has failed to reside at his designated bail address and therefore breached his conditions. Inquiries are ongoing to establish his whereabouts and anyone with information should phone police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111".
