Stolen car rams into police officer at Logan Reserve

A CAR has been rammed into a police officer, leaving him with leg injuries, at Logan Reserve.

Jimboomba police station officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh said police found two cars at Henderson boat ramp, Logan Reserve about 7.40am when they responded to reports of suspicious behavior.

“As the police pulled up, the driver of a four-wheel-drive, which had been stolen on November 3, fled from the scene on foot,” he said.

“A Suzuki Swift was then driven at the police car as the officer was getting out.

“The Suzuki struck the door of the police car, trapping the officer between the door and the vehicle.”

Senior Sergeant Waugh said the policeman sustained minor leg injuries.

The 4WD had been stolen from the Gold Coast.

Police said they would allege in court that it had been at the scene of a break-in and other attempted break-ins at New Beith.

Police arrested a 22-year-old Eagleby man near to the boat ramp.

He was charged with one count each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possession of suspected stolen property.

He appeared in Beenleigh Magistrates Court on November 6 and was remanded in custody to appear on November 22.

They later arrested a 23-year-old Beenleigh woman who was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
