A man who absconded from court after being convicted of rape has been arrested.
Adrian Horwat, 21, from Southend, was convicted of rape following a trial at Southend Crown Court on Monday, March 14.
He absconded from the court while on bail before the jury were able to return verdicts on four other matters, which he was then later found not guilty of.
Horwat contacted police this afternoon, Sunday April 3, and has been arrested for breaching court-imposed bail restrictions.
He is currently in custody.
