Fleeing motorcyclist caught by police dog

A 31-year-old man has been charged with multiple offences dating back to July 2 after police chased him down in Greenwood.

Last night Vehicle Crime Unit detectives were conducting patrols in the northern suburbs when they noticed a Honda CBR motorcycle with false plates.

Police observed the motorcycle driving along Gorman Street in Greenwood before it entered Cockman Park.

The motorcycle was then seen on the ground in the park and the rider fled on foot.

Police dog Hector tracked the rider through the park and eventually located him hiding behind bins on Dargin Place.

Police arrested the man and ascertained he was allegedly involved in an armed robbery on July 2 this year.

According to police, the man had stolen a vehicle armed with a knife.

He was charged with several stealing and reckless driving offences, no authority to drive, armed robbery and breach of bail.

The man, of no fixed address, is due to appear in Perth Magistrate’s Court today.
