Police have made an arrest after a man escaped from police custody last Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Auckland City district commander Superintendent Karyn Malthus said officers were called to an incident where an unknown man was sleeping in a person’s vehicle.
He was taken back to the Avondale Police Station but fled while being taken from the police car into the station.
“Police gave chase however were unable to catch him and he was last seen running down a driveway on Great North Rd,” Malthus said.
On Thursday, police said a man was arrested about midday in connection to the incident.
