A MAN wanted by police after an assault and theft in Redditch has been arrested.

Earlier this month, West Mercia Police launched an appeal to help track down Martin Masters, who has links to the Kidderminster area, as they believed he could have information relating to the crimes.

The 33-year-old was arrested by officers this morning.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "Thank you to everyone who shared our post about wanted man Martin Masters.

"Following his arrest this morning he is now in custody."
