A New Zealander who was wanted by Interpol for absconding while on court bail for an assault case here has returned and surrendered himself to the police.

In a statement, the police said that Robert Stephen Dahlberg, 35, returned to Singapore on Thursday and was arrested upon arrival.

The New Zealander was charged with assault after he and two expatriates were involved in a brawl at Suntec City two years ago.

He is accused of voluntarily hurting two taxi drivers and two taxi passengers.

Believed to have been drunk, the trio also hijacked and crashed a taxi. Dahlberg fled the country after he and his friends were charged in July last year.

Briton Robert James Springall, 25, also fled in December. The two men were subsequently put on Interpol's wanted list.

Australian Nathan Robert Miller, 36, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three weeks in jail in February this year.

Dahlberg will appear in court on September 7 to face charges for voluntarily causing grievous hurt and causing hurt with a rash act.

Springall is still at large and wanted by the Interpol.
