Fugi­tive ar­rested

The Weekend Post - - Nation -

A 37-YEAR-OLD Aus­tralian man ac­cused of steal­ing a $750,000 lux­ury boat in Thai­land and sail­ing it to Aus­tralia has been ar­rested in the NT.

Owen Van Duren is ac­cused of flee­ing Thai­land, where he was ap­peal­ing a jail sen­tence for the bru­tal as­sault of two air­line hostesses dur­ing a flight be­tween Bangkok and Syd­ney last year.

Com­mon­wealth pros­e­cu­tors with­drew their charges over the same al­leged mid­flight as­sault last month, but he is fac­ing charges in the NT over the ves­sel he al­legedly sailed with his brother.
