Two charged over southern suburbs pursuit, SA

A man and a woman have been arrested following a lengthy pursuit from the city to the southern suburbs last tonight, according to SA Police.

Police spotted a black Holden sedan acting suspiciously in Vinrace Street, Adelaide just before 9pm on Thursday 16 November. As police activated their lights in an attempt to pull the car over, it took off at speed and was pursued out of the CBD along Goodwood Road until it reached Cross Road where it drove through a service station at a fast rate.

The pursuit continued west along Cross Road, then through several back streets to travel south on Brighton Road before the car was followed to Trott Park. The car was then abandoned by the occupants in Counihan Court. (a dead end street)

Several patrols swarmed the area with dog operations officers and PolAir brought in to assist with the search of the female driver and male passenger.

A woman was found hiding in bushes at Hessing Crescent while PolAir spotted a man on the roof of a house in Adams Road before he was arrested in the rear yard.

The driver of the black Holden, 20-year-old woman of North Plympton was charged with driving to evade police, driving while disqualified, driving in a manner dangerous to the public, hindering police, possessing a prohibited weapon ( a dagger was found in her possession) and breach of bail.

A 37-year-old man of no fixed address was charged with breaching his bail and failing to answer questions as to the driver of a vehicle.

Both have been refused police bail and will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court later today.

There were no injuries or damage to any vehicle in the incident. The car was not reported stolen and it’s now been impounded for 28 days.
