BRIMBANK: Cars rammed at Airport West

A Police officer has been injured and a man and woman are in custody following a dynamic arrest in Airport West on Thursday (Jan. 20).

The pair were arrested in a Louis St carpark after three police cars were rammed by an allegedly stolen car shortly before 12 Noon

The arrests, after police were called to a suspicious vehicle in the carpark, come after a stolen 4-wheel drive and a stolen white van were used in smash-grab burglaries at Glenroy and Fawkner on Wednesday (Jan. 19).

It is also believed the pair were involved in a smash-grab burglary at a computer store in Millers Rd in Altona North about 2am Thursday.

A Police officer has been injured and three police cars damaged after the offenders continued to ram the police vehicles as officers moved in to make their arrests.

The man has been taken to hospital with minor injuries and the woman is assisting police with their enquiries.

A detective acting sergeant was taken to hospital with a serious leg injury.

The four-wheel drive and van, allegedly used in yesterday’s ram-raids, were recovered by Police in Fawkner and Deer Park.
