    An international hunt has ended for a suspected British sex offender who fled to Israel to avoid trial for alleged crimes against children, when the man was arrested in Jerusalem after two weeks on the run.

    Todros Grynhaus, from Salford, is thought to have escaped from the UK on false documents after being arrested and charged with historic sexual and indecent assault against three minors.

    He was given strict bail conditions by the UK courts to surrender his passport and was forbidden to travel abroad, but Israeli police confirmed the 48-year-old was apprehended by its officers last Thursday (February 28)).

    An Israeli police spokesperson confirmed: “[Mr Grynhaus] was arrested in Jerusalem at the Central Bus Station. A regular police security check at the scene found that he had a false ID.

    “He was held and questioned by police and is currently still in police custody.”

    No other arrests have been made in relation to aiding the man’s escape, but Greater Manchester Police confirmed they would be asking Israeli authorities to return Mr Grynhaus to the UK to stand trial later this year.

    It is unclear whether an extradition will be requested under a bilateral agreement already in place between Israel and the UK.
