NSW police are on the hunt for a Queensland man who allegedly stole two cars, held a Moama man at knife-point and escaped custody three times.
Senior Constable Peter Joice of Deniliquin police said police issued warrants for the man’s arrest after he failed to appear at an Albury court on Monday.
On March 17, the man, 29, allegedly stole a car belonging to a Moama man he had known for a short time.
After writing off the car in an accident while driving toward Womboota, the man was taken to Echuca hospital for treatment.
He was later taken to a mental health facility in Bendigo.
Sen. Constable Joice said the man escaped from the Bendigo facility and returned to Moama.
On Tuesday last week, it is alleged the man, armed with a knife, entered the caravan of the same Moama man.
He demanded keys to other vehicles and a phone, Sen. Constable Joice said.
Moama police arrested the man after spotting a stolen vehicle on the Cobb Hwy, north of Moama.
He was charged with aggravated break, enter and steal, two counts of theft of a motor vehicle and two counts of unlicensed driving.
He was remanded in custody and appeared before a Deniliquin magistrate who refused bail.
Before being taken to a NSW prison for remand, the man was treated in Deniliquin hospital, where he again tried to escape.
Police caught the man before he left the hospital and charged him with unlawful escape of custody.
He was then taken to an Albury mental health facility, Nolan House, for treatment.
The man escaped once again.
Sen. Constable Joice said police believed the man was headed toward Sydney.
