Two arrested following pursuit in Liverpool

We have arrested two men following a pursuit in Liverpool city centre today (Friday 25 January 2019).

A white Transit van came to the attention of patrols in the Westminster Road area at around midday.

The vehicle was pursued and two males made off on foot from the van in the Derby Road area before stealing a white Kia Sportage car and driving away.

During the pursuit, the Kia Sportage was driven at the front of a police vehicle on Heathcoate Road in Walton, causing minor damage.

The white Kia car came to a stop on Lord Street where two male occupants left the car and made off on foot towards Liverpool One. No officers were injured.

A 39-year-old man and a 18-year-old man were detained and have been arrested on suspicion of aggravated vehicle taking. They have been taken to a police station in Merseyside to be interviewed.
