Marlborough police have arrested a wanted man after four days on the run.
The offender prompted a response from the Armed Offenders Squad after he allegedly threatened and assaulted another man at a Blenheim property on Saturday.
Sergeant Tamati Te-Tua, of Blenheim, said the man was located and arrested on Wednesday afternoon.
Police launched a public appeal for information on Tuesday.
The man would appear in the Blenheim District Court on Thursday morning.
