Why was he free? Predatory paedophile from Portugal groomed and raped British girl, 12, before going on the run after police gave him bail and let him keep his passport

A predatory Portuguese child rapist has gone on the run after he was granted bail and allowed to keep his passport while awaiting trial.

Antonio Pedro De Alves attacked a 12-year-old girl in a supermarket car park after grooming her for six months on the internet while posing as a 15-year-old boy.

De Alves, 41, skipped bail before he was due to stand trial in Stafford last week.
