A man wanted on warrants for offences including murder and manslaughter, has been arrested in the Lake Macquarie area overnight.
Officers from Lake Macquarie Police District have made public appeals to locate the 24-year-old man as they continue to investigate the death of a 60-year-old man, who died after he was attacked in his Whitebridge home on Monday 17 December 2018.
Detectives from Lake Macquarie Police District, assisted by the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad, established Strike Force Lacrozia to investigate the circumstances surrounding the older man’s death.
Following inquiries, a 24-year-old man was arrested after crashing his motorcycle into an unmarked police vehicle on Ntaba Road, Jewells, about 11pm yesterday (Sunday 30 December 2019).
The man has been taken to hospital where he is being checked as a precaution, and remains there under police guard.
Two men, aged 19 and 22, have already been charged over the Whitebridge man’s murder and remain before the courts.
