A 35-year-old man will appear in court today (Tuesday) after NSW Police extradited him from Queensland yesterday.

On Thursday (February 19), the man allegedly failed to appear at Lismore Local Court and two conviction warrants were issued for his arrest.

Police from Richmond Local Area Command attempted to locate the man and their investigations indicated that he might have been in Queensland.

On Saturday (May 16), Queensland Police raided a house in Nerang and arrested the 35-year-old man and took him to Southport Police Station.

Yesterday NSW Police successfully applied to the Southport Magistrates Court to extradite him.

The man was later charged at Lismore Police Station with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, malicious damage and the two outstanding warrants.

He was also served with an apprehended violence order.

The man was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today (Tuesday May 19).
