A 17-year-old Mowbray male will face court on Thursday night charged with a string of offences.

Police charged the teenager on Thursday afternoon with two counts of aggravated assault, stealing and evade police.

One aggravated assault charge and the evade police charge relate to a hit and run incident in Gaunt Street, Invermay on Wednesday night.

Police allege the 17-year-old rammed a police car and injured an officer about 8.30pm.

Police alleged he reversed out of a driveway into the police car and sped off soon after and crashed into a tree.

Officers Escape Injuries as Queensland Police Car Rammed Twice


A Police car was rammed and narrowlly missed being struck again when when two separate vehicles drove at it in Tewantin last night. Just after midnight police patrolling in an unmarked vehicle tried to intercept a car on Noosa Cooroy Rd but the car failed to stop.

A marked police vehicle also attempted to intercept the car but it sped off and police called off their intercept attempts. Police stopped their marked vehicle a short distance behind the car when it reversed rapidly towards them.

The officer tried to avoid the collision by also reversing but were struck by the other car. The police vehicle sustained moderate damage. The male officer, and sole occupant, was uninjured.

The vehicle was described as a silver Ford sedan bearing New South Wales registration BJ65UF with a male driver. It has possibly sustained some damage to the rear, as a result of this incident.

Police are also investigating an unrelated incident that occurred a short time later. Around 12.35am whilst two officers were waiting with the damaged police vehicle they attempted to intercept a van on Wentworth St when it allegedly drove directly towards the police vehicle.

One of the two officers had to take evasive action to avoid being struck. This vehicle was subsequently found abandoned in Muirfield St, Tewantin, a short time later.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 24hrs a day.

Queensland Police Officer Injured After Police Vehicle Rammed At Holland Park West

The driver of a stolen car rammed a police vehicle, injuring an officer, as well as damaging two other vehicles in a bid to evade police at Holland Park West this afternoon.

Around 12.30pm a police car pulled up in a line of stationary traffic on Logan Road, near the intersection with Nursery Road. Officers, checking the black Volkswagon Tiguan station wagon in front of them, identified it as a stolen vehicle.

An officer alighted from the un-marked police vehicle, approached the station wagon and spoke to the male driver.

The driver, caught in the line of stationary traffic, reversed the stolen car at speed into the front of the police vehicle. The station wagon then drove forward and shunted two other vehicles out of its way before driving away at speed.

The driver of the police vehicle, a male constable, sustained minor neck and back injuries and was transported to hospital for treatment. No one else was injured.

Three vehicles, including the police car, sustained minor damage.

Patrols of the area failed to locate the station wagon with police appealing for anyone who may see a black 2009 Volkswagon Tiguan station wagon (with panel damage), Queensland registration 792 MRE to contact police.

Members of the public are advised not to approach the vehicle or the driver, if they sight the station wagon.

The vehicle had been stolen on August 11 from Ascot.
