Police search for man that drove ute at female officer, sparking police pursuit

By Lachlan Roberts 18 May 2018 0

NSW and ACT Police are looking for a man who drove a ute at a female police officer at Queanbeyan, sparking a police pursuit yesterday afternoon (17 May).

About 1:35 pm, an officer from Monaro Police District attempted to speak with a man on Mowatt Street at Queanbeyan East, due to concerns about the driver’s behaviour.

As the officer approached the ute, the driver accelerated harshly towards her, forcing her to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

The vehicle was later sighted on Bungendore Road by another police vehicle, which saw the ute cross to the incorrect side of the road and hit a guardrail.

A pursuit was initiated but was terminated shortly after due to safety concerns.

The ute was found empty in the ACT about 1:50 pm on Pialligo Avenue, near the airport.

A search involving police from both NSW and the ACT is now underway for the male driver.

The man is described as being of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appearance, aged in his 20s, with a slim build and dark hair styled in a mullet. He was wearing a dark-coloured top.

Anyone with information about the driver’s identity or his whereabouts is urged to contact Queanbeyan Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
