Man in stolen car charged after allegedly punching police officer in the head

A Queensland man who punched a police officer after being pulled over with no registration plates in a stolen car has been charged.

When the police officer approached the car, the man, who was a passenger, punched the officer in the head and body a number of times around 5pm on Christmas Eve in the Glass House Mountains.

As a struggle ensued, the offender told the car's driver and a nine-year-old passenger to leave the car.

When they got out he swapped to the driver's seat and fled, leaving them behind.

He was caught at a Morningside home in Brisbane on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old has been charged with four counts of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and two counts each of burglary and serious assault police and will appear at Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
