A police spokeswoman said officers tried to stop the man near the Curtin Avenue and Marine Parade intersection in Cottesloe.

"After a short pursuit the Commodore was abandoned and the driver and passenger ran from the vehicle," she said.

The driver of the car was allegedly caught hiding in scrub a short time later.

The Commodore was stolen from a home in Hillarys on Saturday.

A 31-year-old Padbury man will be summonsed for stealing a motor vehicle.
