Putting the bite on arrested teen


A POLICE dog bit a teenager during an arrest after a pursuit along Peninsula Link, 12.19am, Tuesday 12 December.

Somerville Highway Patrol had attempted to intercept a black Subaru with stolen number plates allegedly speeding through roadworks towards Springvale Rd.

The teen, a boy, 18, and girl, 17, and another youth still at large, were spotted by the police helicopter after they dumped the car in a retirement village car park and attempted to hide.

A dog from the Canine Unit cornered them in the front yard and bit the 18-year-old teenager, of Mill Park, who was recovering in Maroondah Hospital last week. He is likely to face car theft charges.

A Mill Park girl has been bailed to appear on similar charges at a children’s court at a later date. The third teen is still at large.
