A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Norwich man who failed to appear at court after he scooped up a cat in a bag and tried to leave the area with it.
David Iwo, 23, was due to appear at Norwich Magistrates' Court after being charged with causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal in Norwich on March 23, 2019.
But Iwo, of Palmer Road, Norwich, failed to appear before city magistrates on Tuesday, February 23.
A court spokesman has confirmed that a warrant has since been issued for his arrest.
It was not the first time the case has been listed and the matter was previously adjourned from January 29 this year.
