“The police were on his trail after a warrant of his arrest was issued after he failed to attend a criminal trial case in the Northern Cape High Court.
“He is also wanted in Middelburg for a case of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.”
Tawana added that during his arrest he was found in possession of a firearm.
“It was later established that it was a BB gun. The suspect is expected to appear in the Northern Cape High Court soon.”
