Katherine Police have arrested a convicted rapist who had been on the run for a week, last night.
David Gundari, 45, spent 12 years in a Western Australia jail after he bashed and raped two tourists in Broome in separate attacks in 2006.
He was released last year after serving his full sentence, but was due to face the Wyndham Magistrate's Court on Thursday accused of breaching a Post Sentence Supervision Order.
An arrest warrant was issued when he did not appear in court.
Originally from the NT, Mr Gundari, was also wanted in Katherine following allegations he was armed in public and caused damage to a property in late September of this year.
Katherine Police Station Acting Senior Sergeant Bradley Fox said the arrest was in relation to alleged weapons offences as well as outstanding NT warrants.
"Overnight Katherine General Duties police arrested David Gundari in relation to weapons offences allegedly committed in Katherine East in late September, 2019 and outstanding NT Warrants of Arrest dating back to 2005," he said.
"Katherine Police are also contacting WA detectives in relation to Gundari failing to appear at a WA court last week."
Gundari man is in police custody on charges relating to the incidents in late September.
He is expected to appear in Katherine Local Court tomorrow.
