Avon and Somerset Constabulary

Police have caught a man who has been on the run this week.

Wayne Savage was wanted by police after failing to appear in court over allegations of assault, traffic offences, criminal damage and breach of court order.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary launched a public appeal to find Savage on Wednesday and apprehended him today (Friday).

A police spokesman said: “We had issued an appeal to find the 33-year-old in connection with breaching a court order and failing to appear at court on charges of criminal damage, common assault and traffic offences.

“We’re pleased to report wanted man Savage has been arrested and is currently in police custody.

“He was apprehended within two days of our appeal and we’d like to thank our social media users, as well as the wider public, for their overwhelming response to the appeal.

Savage lives in Highbridge and police said he had connections with Weston-super-Mare and Birmingham.
