A wanted man has been arrested just hours after police issued a warning for the public to stay away from him.

Christopher Muir, 35, was wanted by police after allegedly reversing a stolen vehicle into a police car, injuring an officer, in Marton on Sunday.

It had been believed Muir was hitchhiking toward Wellington but he was arrested by officers in the Marton area on Monday afternoon.

He is expected to face Whanganui District Court on Tuesday on multiple charges.

The officer was taken to hospital with bruising and whiplash.
