ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident that occurred on Hindmarsh Drive, Phillip about 12.25am this morning (Sunday 6 June).
A member of the public was harassed by the occupants of a 2009 grey Mitsubishi Lancer sedan that had been stolen the previous day from the victim of one of the aggravated robberies. The member of the public had a glass bottle thrown at his car before the offending vehicle and occupants took off down Hindmarsh Drive towards Weston Creek. It appears that a white Holden Commodore was in company with the stolen Lancer.
Police located the Mitsubishi Lancer a short time later in the Kambah Village car park and a short pursuit commenced. The pursuit was terminated due to the dangerous manner of driving by the offending vehicle.
