Police are hunting a wheelchair-bound homeless man who once held up a bank and threatened to blow up the same building just days after he was released from jail.
Sean Nicholas was sentenced to 14 months behind bars in December after taking a homemade bomb to the Central Park building in Auckland, New Zealand, last July.
The 46 year-old told terrified bystanders he would detonate the device, before he set alight a wick protruding from his suitcase when police arrived, Stuff reported.
The wick stopped burning when it reached the suitcase and Nicholas was arrested – in his wheelchair – without causing any harm.
