A HASTINGS man awaiting sentence in Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week allegedly jumped from the dock and fled before being recaptured early next morning.
Caleb Pavlovic, 20 years old, was facing charges of criminal damage and assault, was about to be returned to the cells when he ran from the court complex about 4pm, Tuesday 23 October. A protective custody officer was allegedly injured in the incident.
He was arrested at a fast food outlet in Hastings just before 1am, Tuesday 24 October, and further charged with escaping from custody.
The man will return to the court on Wednesday 31 October.
