Police have charged a 24 year old man with a total of 31 offences, including two counts of attempted murder of police officers. He is expected to appear before Londonderry Magistrates Court tomorrow morning, Saturday 26 March. As is normal procedure all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.
The charges are in connection with the arrest of a man following a two vehicle RTC that occurred on the Caw roundabout in Derry/Londonderry just before 12.30pm on Friday 5 February.
A grey Skoda Superb had been stolen in a creeper burglary in the Lindenwood Park area in the early hours of the morning. This car was later spotted by police just before 12.20pm. A police pursuit was in place when the stolen car was involved in a collision with another car.
It is not believed that anyone was seriously injured in this collision, however two police officers who were on foot were injured in their attempts to get out of the way when the stolen car drove at them. Another officer was injured when making the arrest.
