Man who jumped from courtroom dock captured

A man who went on the run after jumping out of a courtroom dock has been found.

Carl Bond, 20, of no fixed abode, fled Eastbourne Magistrates' Court where he faced two charges of assault and breaching the sexual offenders' register.

Police appealed for anyone who saw the defendant running from the court in Old Orchard Road at about midday.

A force spokesman confirmed he was later arrested in Eastbourne and taken into custody.
