Flight from Police et al.

A 30 year old man from Austin was arrested on Monday morning for numerous offences after three incidents on the weekend. Around 1:24 am on August 9th, an officer stopped a vehicle travelling the wrong direction on Princess Ave. The male driver provided his identification and then drove off. The officer pursued the vehicle, however due to high speeds, the pursuit was cancelled on Rosser Ave. The owner of the vehicle was located who advised the male driver had taken the vehicle.

At 11:14 am on Sunday, the female owner of the vehicle called police to report the man had assaulted her and stolen the vehicle in the parking lot of the Brandon Shoppers Mall. After stealing the vehicle, the man drove through the parking lot erratically and the wrong way on 18th St south. He left the area and could not be located. At 9:40 pm, an officer noticed the suspect vehicle in a parking lot on Willowdale Crs. As the officer stopped his police cruiser, the driver sat up in the front seat, reversed the vehicle, striking the police cruiser and fled at a high rate of speed. The suspect vehicle was briefly pursued but due to high rate of speeds the pursuit was stopped.   Warrants for all three of these incidents were requested.
