Violent Durban ex 'scared of cops'

2012-09-13 08:03

Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal man hid out for two weeks as a specially formed police team hunted Durban city streets for him.

When Michael Padayachee was finally found, arrested and taken to court, he told a magistrate that he had been too afraid to go to the police and had feared for his life, the TimesLive reported.

"I knew that the police wanted me but I feared for my life and did not go to them because I didn't know if they had opened a case," said Padayachee in court.

A massive police search had been launched for Padayachee after he allegedly viciously attacked his ex-girlfriend, Tina Mbili, and left her for dead in a Phoenix park.

A prosecutor said Padayachee should not be granted bail as he was a danger to Mbili.

She had been granted a protection order against him and there were two other domestic violence cases also against him.

    This savage nust be locked up and hopefully the inmates will beat him to a pulp so he can feel what that poor woman went thru. Any man who beats a woman should be beaten up in prison.
