A MAN who allegedly twice rammed police patrol cars spent the night under guard in Frankston Hospital before fronting Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week.
Police cornered the 21-year-old around 1.30am, Thursday 1 August, in a Moorooduc Highway service road near Humphries Road, Frankston South.
They said he deliberately reversed the stolen car he was driving into them and attempted to run off but was caught after a brief chase.
Police searched the vehicle and allegedly found a quantity of knives and stolen number plates.
They said the man had earlier rammed a police car in Frankston South and attempted to ram two others in Mornington and Hastings earlier in the night. No police were injured in the incidents.
The man, of no fixed address, was interviewed by Frankston CIU detectives on Thursday morning and on Friday was sent to Melbourne Magistrates’ Court for a filing hearing. He is facing 25 charges – most relating to the alleged ramming incidents – as well as theft of a car, three of theft from cars, unlicensed driving, reckless conduct endangering life, dangerous driving, possessing methyl-amphetamine, resisting arrest, breaching bail, intentionally ramming police, and dangerous driving.
