Police arrest three after pursuit in Sydney CBD

Three males have been arrested after a car was involved in a pursuit with police overnight.

Just after 12am (Sunday 13 June 2021), officers attached to Ryde Police Area Command were conducting proactive patrols at Cherrybrook, as part of Strike Force Coborro, established to investigate stolen motor vehicles and theft from motor vehicle offences in the area.

Officers observed a black Range Rover travelling on New Line Road, and after conducting checks of the vehicle, established it was stolen from the Epping area on Tuesday 8 June 2021.

Police initiated a pursuit after the vehicle failed to stop, but it was terminated a short time later due to safety concerns.

About 12.30am (Sunday 13 June 2021), officers attached to Sydney City Police Area Command observed the Range Rover driving on Elizabeth Street in the CBD.

The vehicle turned into St James Road and stopped, before the occupants fled on foot.

After a short foot pursuit, three males – aged 15, 16 and 20 – were arrested and taken to Surry Hills Police Station.

A male constable sustained a minor hand injury during the arrest.

He was taken to Sydney Hospital for assessment in a stable condition.

Inquiries are continuing.
