Police have now arrested George Vincent, 21, who was wanted for failing to appear at court to answer theft, damage and public order charges.
He had failed to appear at Crawley Magistrates Court in August last year to answer charges of theft and threatening behaviour at a shop in Horsham and with criminal damage to a van in Copthorne.
Appeals for his whereabouts had been issued by police, most recently on 5 April.
Vincent was arrested by officers from Crawley on Sunday evening 26 April and was due to appear in custody before magistrates at Brighton on Monday 27 April.
Two people have been arrested in connection with a violent incident at a house in Crawley.
Police received a report of a stabbing at an address in Warren Drive around 5.09pm on Thursday 23 April.
Officers attended and a man was discovered with a minor injury to his face. He declined medical treatment.
Following enquiries, a local PCSO spotted two people matching the description of the suspects and called for assistance – both suspects were subsequently arrested in the town shortly afterwards.
A 23-year-old man of no fixed address and a 17-year-old boy from Crawley, arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, remain in police custody at this stage.
Assistant Chief Constable Julia Chapman said: “The quick-thinking actions of one of our local PCSOs enabled the swift arrest of two suspects in connection with this violent incident. Our PCSOs are invaluable in the work they do to keep our communities safe and feeling safe.”
A man who breached his Community Protection Notice for the fifth time has been issued a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order.
Officers were conducting a foot patrol in the centre of Crawley on Wednesday, 1 April, when they spotted 24-year-old Odiaka Ikpade.
Ikpade was issued with a Community Protection Notice (CPN) in November 2019 which prevents him from entering Crawley town centre.
Police approached Ikpade and he was arrested for breaching the CPN. While being arrested, Ikpade claimed to be infected with coronavirus and threatened to spit at the officers.
He was taken into police custody where he again threatened staff and spat over the floor of the police cell. read more here
