Police are looking for a senior Hells Angels figure after he failed to appear in court to face assault charges.

Paul Peterson, who has held the position of sergeant-at arms of the Hells Angels Nomads, was scheduled to appear in Heidelberg Magistrates Court for "assault-related matters".

The court issued a warrant for Mr Peterson in his absence on April 17, police spokesman Sergeant Kris Hamilton said.

Police on Wednesday released photos of Mr Peterson and have appealed to the public for more information.

"The 37-year-old is believed to be a member of the Hells Angels and is known to frequent Thomastown, Reservoir and Mill Park," Sergeant Hamilton said.

Mr Peterson is about 176 centimetres tall, with brown hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion.

Six Satudarah members arrested; weapon possession

Six members of Satudarah motorcycle club Satudarah were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of weapons possession or weapons trade. Two women were also arrested. The eight suspects had to announce themselves at the police station in East-Netherlands and were there arrested, a spokesperson for the East-Netherlands police says.

The police in the East have been involved in an international investigation into drug and weapons trafficking. German police requested the support of the Dutch Public Prosecution Authority in the form of collecting evidence.

It seemed that a chapter of Satudarah in Duisberg (Germany) was working together with various Satudarah chapters in the Netherlands.

Christopher 'Badness' Binse, who held police at bay for 44 hours in a siege, also stalked a man he suspected had shot former Bandidos enforcer Toby Mitchell, it can now be revealed.

Binse, 45, on Monday pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court to charges related to the siege at his Keilor East home in May 2012, an armed robbery in Laverton two months earlier and of possessing a cache of weapons that year.

The court heard on Monday that a semi-automatic pistol, silencer and laser pointer were found in Binse's Land Rover on January 9, 2012, when it was parked in the vicinity of the home of a man with whom he shared "bad blood".
