Magistrate Lenca Joya Oddile lst week ordered that Mervin Blom be remanded to police custody for attempting to flee from the police.
It remains unclear as to why the suspect was arrested in the first place; however it is alleged that while he was in holding he tried to escape. At the time, he was being held at the Katutura Police Station.
He was arrested on 17 October last year, and his case was last week postponed to 20 July 2015 for his plea. The suspect requested for legal aid.
