A man accused of family violence offences in Canberra has been arrested in north Queensland and was remanded in custody when he fronted court in the ACT.
ACT Policing had made a public plea for help to find the 37 year old earlier this month before members of Queensland Police arrested him in Townsville early on Monday morning (28 August).
He was extradited to the ACT where he appeared in the Magistrates Court on Wednesday (30 August) and was accused of seriously assaulting a woman and damaging her vehicle.
In addition to facing charges of violence, ACT Policing said he was also the subject of two outstanding warrants after allegedly breaching an intensive corrections order in July 2023 and failing to appear in court in early August.
Wearing a t-shirt, shorts and a pair of Crocs, the Canberra man was charged with assault, damaging property and failing to appear after a bail undertaking.
His lawyer told the court he would not apply for bail and Magistrate Robert Cook remanded him in custody to next appear on 31 August to enter pleas.
