Police dog detains suspect after police car rammed in Nottinghamshire

A suspected car thief was chased down and detained by a police dog – moments after a police car was rammed.

PD Wolf and his handler were on routine patrol at around 3am on Wednesday when they pulled up behind a stolen car in a car park in Nottingham Road, Selston.

The car, which had been taken from the area the previous afternoon, was immediately reversed into the police vehicle before a suspect tried to flee the scene.

However, he was no match for PD Wolf who quickly chased him down and detained him.

A 46-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of vehicle theft, criminal damage and assaulting a police officer.

Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“Our team of police dogs and their expert handlers are an invaluable resource for the force, and this was another good example of what they can do.

“Offences of this nature are extremely upsetting for victims and I am pleased that on this occasion we were able to recover this vehicle so quickly.”
