Police are continuing to search for a sex offender who has been on the run for four days in east London.
Webb may be a danger to women, say police
Before the jury returned its guilty verdict on Wednesday, Anthony Webb, 53, ran off from Snaresbrook Crown Court.
He was convicted of indecently assaulting an 18-year-old girl in Chingford last year.
Police say anyone who sees Webb, who is white, 5ft 8in, stocky with thick grey hair, should phone 999 as he may be a danger to women.
Webb, of Hollisfield, Cromer Street, King's Cross, London had been granted bail "within the vicinity of the court" when he absconded.
An arrest warrant has been issued.
