A VAIN fugitive begged cops to remove his “unflattering” mugshot from a Facebook appeal. Wayne Esmonde, 35, is wanted over an alleged assault.
A picture of him with shaven head and wide eyes was posted by South Wales Police.
Esmonde wrote on the page: “I am him. Not very flattering. I’d appreciate it if you’d take this down.
“Innocent until proven guilty and all that. I’ve spoken to my solicitor and they will advise me what to do next. Thanks.”
Chris Prosser mocked: “Shouldn’t be hard to find. The whites of his eyes would light up half of South Wales.”
Jonny Rees wrote: “He’d be class in a staring competition.”
Police say the post will remain until they have traced Esmonde, of Fforestfach, Swansea.
