Police and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office are asking for the public’s help in locating a convicted child rapist who fled authorities during his trial last month.
Stephen Corbin Jr., 38, of Methuen, was convicted of eight counts of aggravated rape of a child on April 14. Halfway through his trial, he cut off his GPS bracelet near North Street in Andover and authorities have been unable to locate him since.
With blonde hair and blue eyes, Corbin is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs around 160 pounds. It has ties to Methuen, Lawrence, Haverhill and Hudson, New Hampshire.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts should immediately call the Massachusetts State Police at 978-538-6180, but should not approach him, officials said.
Corbin was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl, both known to him, on multiple occasions at a Lexington residence and a Bedford motel in 2017.
Law enforcement officials said he gave the minors drugs and alcohol several times before assaulting them.
Corbin appeared for the first three days of his six-day trial before cutting off the GPS tracking device he was ordered to wear and fleeing.
Police said they followed several leads, but were unable to locate him.
