Separate pursuits keep police busy

A man has been charged and another is in police custody over two separate police chases in Perth suburbs last night.

A 20-year-old Bedford man was charged after allegedly leading police on a pursuit in a stolen Toyota Rav 4 in Balga last night.

The man was allegedly seen driving erratically along Beach Road and sped off when approached by police.

Officers followed the car and the driver lost control of the car and slid into a verge at the intersection of Nanovich Avenue and Nelligan Avenue in Girrawheen.

The man has been charged with stealing a motor vehicle and driving recklessly, reckless driving, failing to stop for police and having no authority to drive.

He is due to appear in Perth Magistrate’s Court on July 16.

In a separate incident, a 35-year-old Clarkson man is in police custody after allegedly leading police on a chase before crashing the car he was driving into another vehicle in Wanneroo last night.

A police spokeswoman said the man is likely to face several traffic offences after allegedly refusing to stop for police while driving a Holden Rodeo along Dundas Road in Malaga at about 9.05pm.

Police stopped following the car after the driver allegedly drove in a dangerous manner on Pinjar Road.

Later that night the car collided with a Holden Cruse on Wanneroo Road, near Hart Court in Wanneroo, where police apprehended the driver.

No one was injured in the crash.
