Police arrest man after ramming police vehicle

Police have arrested a 20-year-old man from Whittlesea after a police divisional van was rammed in North Melbourne this morning (28 April).

A silver Holden Commodore was reported stolen overnight from a Glenroy address.

The vehicle was sighted by police at the end of Pampas Street in North Melbourne about 3.20am.

The driver of the stolen vehicle allegedly reversed into the police vehicle a number of times.

The two police members inside, a male Senior Constable and his female Constable passenger, were physically uninjured.

The same vehicle then allegedly crashed into the centre median strip in the south-bound lane on Dalton Road under the Ring Road overpass in Thomastown.

The male driver got out of the vehicle and fled on foot but was subsequently arrested by Dog Squad a short time later.

The offender was taken to hospital under police guard with non-life threatening injuries after being bitten by the dog.

The investigation remains ongoing.
