Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing has taken two men into custody after they fled police on two occasions last night (Friday, 18 July).

About 10pm, police detected a red Nissan Pulsar travelling along William Hovell Drive, Hawker and attempted to perform a traffic stop. The car failed to stop and fled from police. The car travelled through a number of streets in the Cook and Macquarie area before police stopped following the car.

The car had earlier come to attention in Woden after it was seen travelling through a number of intersections against a red light.

A short time later, police in the area located the Nissan Pulsar. Police attempted another traffic stop but the car failed to stop.

The car travelled along a number of streets in Macquarie before it stopped in a car park on Bowman Street. The driver fled from the car and was pursued on foot before being apprehended.

The driver, a 19-year-old man with no fixed abode was identified as having a first instance warrant for his arrest. He returned a positive road side screening test and was conveyed to the ACT Watch House in relation to the outstanding warrant and charged with further traffic offences.

The passenger, a 20-year-old Phillip man was found to be in breach of his bail conditions. He was apprehended and conveyed to the ACT Watch House.

Both men are expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.
