Dramatic scenes as teen biker arrested
Police have released vision of a dramatic police chase of a teenage motorcycle rider, who was pinned by officers after being hit by a car.
It happened about 1.20pm on Wednesday in the outer southern Perth suburb of Cooloongup when police Air Wing spotted the alleged 15-year-old rider behaving suspiciously.
Officers arrived and the rider allegedly sped off, but 20 seconds later they collided with a white SUV at the intersection of Westerly Way and Cambridge Cres.
The rider is thrown over the bonnet of the car, rolling up over the roof, while the bike is thrown several metres.
The vision from Air Wing shows the rider getting up and attempting to run, before three police cars arrive and six officers jump out, pinning him to the ground and placing him under arrest.
The boy was taken to Rockingham Hospital for treatment to injuries he received in the crash.
The motorcycle was seized and Mandurah Detectives are investigating.
Charges haven’t been laid at this stage.
