It is understood he resigned shortly before a previous court hearing in April this year. The IOPC investigated the former detective's contact with five women, following a complaint from one victim.

Van driver doing 9mph in rush-hour mowed down motorist who beeped her horn Sam Dymond A furious driver slammed his van into a motorist after she beeped her horn because of how slow he had been travelling during morning rush-hour. Sam Dymond, then 27, called his victim a 'f***ing s**g' and rammed his white van into her, causing her to go over the bonnet before she ended up on the road. The drama began when the woman was driving to work along Kings Road in Ashton-under-Lyne at 8.30am on May 17, 2017. She sounded her horn when she became stuck behind Dymond's small white van which was travelling at 'very slowly' at between five and nine miles per hour, prosecutor Kate Hammond told Minshull Street Crown Court . The slow pace continued for about a mile until the van, which had been stolen, stopped at lights and Dymond shouted at the woman: "F***ing s***- you dirty s***." When the woman tried to overtake the van, Dymond swerved into her path. He then drove around a block to manoeuvre himself directly behind the woman, before pulling alongside her. The court heard Dymond's front seat passenger spat onto the woman's car. Then, after the woman got out of her car to take pictures of Dymond and the van, he 'drove at' her. The victim was fortunate to escape only with soreness to her neck and shoulders and bruising to her legs, the court heard. The road rage attack happened four years ago but Dymond has only now been jailed because it took a year for police to catch him only for him to be released on bail, allowing him to go on the run. Police arrested Dymond in April 2018, after his victim had seen his picture on Facebook, and alerted cops. He claimed he could not remember the incident but admitted he had consumed alcohol and cocaine.

Dymond, now 31, of Knott Lane in Oldham, was jailed for ten months and two weeks after he admitted dangerous driving, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and two counts of failing to attend court. Man caught on CCTV attempting to rape woman as she slept on the sofa Ali-Yahya Haroun (Image: GMP) A man has been jailed after he was caught on CCTV attempting to rape a woman as she slept on the sofa. Ali-Yahya Horoun, 28, had been staying at an asylum seekers refuge in Rochdale when the victim visited the address with a friend last year. Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court heard how the woman had fallen asleep on a sofa after she and two friends spent the afternoon drinking together. A jury previously heard that she had not met the defendant prior to the attack. CCTV from the refuge's communal area captured Horoun entering the room before going over to where the woman was sleeping. Footage shows Horoun attempting to communicate with the victim whilst she lay motionless on the sofa, prosecutor Helena Williams told the court. Ms Williams said the defendant then positioned himself on top of her before pulling down her leggings and pulling at her knickers. The court heard that Horoun stopped after being disturbed by the victim's friend, who woke up and noticed what was happening. Police were called to the address and Horoun was later arrested. During a police interview he denied rape and said that the victim had been awake at the time. He was found guilty of an offence of attempted rape. Horoun, of Wycherley Road was jailed for six years and nine months and will be deported after serving half of his sentence.
