The Police Air Wing was called in after a patrol car was rammed in Brunswick on Friday.

A police spokesman confirmed a 4wd rammed the patrol car on Howson Driver near Clifton Road and Forrest Highway just before 10am.

A man fled the scene but was arrested a short time later with the help of local shop owners who had tipped off officers of his whereabouts.

It’s understood the 4wd was involved in a pursuit.

Witnesses told Skeer Media police swarmed the Brunswick town centre as they chased the car.
