A man wanted on outstanding warrants and suspected of a violent assault was arrested by VicPD officers late Monday evening.

Chadwick Wsiaki was the subject of a community alert on October 5th, after he allegedly assaulted a woman and brandished a machete the day before in Stadacona Park.

Police say they tracked Wsiaki to Holly Park in the 1600 block of Fairfield Road Monday evening.

He tried to evade police by wearing a disguise, but officers were able to identify and arrest him just before midnight.

Wsiaki was taken to cells and is being held in custody on his outstanding warrants. The assault remains under investigation.

VicPD credited tips from the community for assisting in the investigation and thanked those that shared information with police.
