Henty midfielder Jarrah Maksymow is on the run after police turned up to a county football final in Albury to arrest the 26-year-old on outstanding warrants.
Maksymow, who was playing for Henty against Brocklesby-Burrumbuttock, is wanted for outstanding warrants relating to assault, break and enter and traffic offences.
Police on Sunday requested public assistance in locating him.
NSW police spokeswoman said cops attended the match to court Maksymow, although they were unable to bring him into custody.
“For operational reasons, an arrangement was made to arrest the man at the end of the game,” she said.
“However, he left the scene prior to the match finishing.
“Inquiries are continuing.”
Maksymow, 26, was described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance, about 175cm tall, of solid build with brown hair and brown eyes.
It is believed Maksymow travelled to Victoria to evade police.
Without Maksymow, Henty went down in their Semi Final to the Saints, losing by 33 points.
