Swedish prosecutor Margareta Danielsson-Olvon has issued a warrant in the arrest of Swedish hockey player Andre Deveaux.

According to Danielsson-Olvon, the whereabouts of Deveaux are unknown at this time. The 31-year-old is wanted under suspicion of assault. 

Deveaux's team, Rögle BK, terminated his contract Monday in regards to the incident. The same day that VIK Västerås, the opposing club, reported Deveaux to police. 

If he does not turn himself into police Sweden could issue an international arrest warrant for Deveaux.
