AN ECHUCA man who escaped custody on June 26 will remain behind bars for another eight weeks.
A 28-year-old man appeared in custody in Echuca Magistrates Court last week facing family violence charges and escaping custody.
Magistrate Bruce Cottrill adjourned the matter to the same court on August 30 and handed down a 12 month intervention order.
After a 300m chase along Heygarth and Hare streets, two police officers recaptured the man at the St Mary’s Church courtyard in Percy St after he escaped custody at an out-of-sessions court hearing.
The man yelled to people in the court when he was taken away by police.
