Five in custody after officer almost struck by stolen car

POLICE have arrested five people following a stolen car pursuit in which a police officer was allegedly almost struck.

A stolen Holden Trax was spotted pulling into a service station at One Mile about 10.45am, prompting police crews to attempt to intercept the offenders.

A Queensland Police spokesman said the vehicle evaded officers, almost striking one of them as it drove away.

The vehicle was then spotted heading along Samford Rd, Leichhardt, and later on Fernvale Rd, Brassall.

Police tracked the vehicle to Karrabin, where stingers were deployed in the vicinity of Keswick Rd, not far from West Moreton Anglican College.

Several police vehicles gathered near the gully that separates Karrabin from Brassall, witnesses told the QT.

The police spokesman said the stolen vehicle ended up in a creek bed at the end of the road.

Polair had been called to assist in tracking the vehicle, however police had intercepted the suspects within about 10 minutes of the initial call.

Five people were taken into custody a short time later without further incident.
