Several officers have been injured after a stolen vehicle was used by burglary suspects to ram two police vehicles in Trafford as they attempted to flee from the scene of a burglary.
The incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning (27th Jan) when officers were called to reports of an attempted burglary on Sylvan Avenue, Timperley.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers disturbed the suspects whilst they were in the middle of ransacking a property.
Before officers had a chance to confront the suspects, they had exited the address and managed to get into their stolen vehicle.
The stolen vehicle then rammed the officers cars, including an unmarked vehicle, before it managed to get away.
GMP Trafford South shared some images of one of their vehicles that had been badly damaged by the suspects.
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said:
“Officers from D and C Relief were quick to the scene.
“Offenders, using a stolen vehicle, rammed two police vehicles as they tried to escape.
“The stolen vehicle was recovered.
“If anyone has any information or CCTV please call 101 quoting Log 514 / 270119”.
A spokesperson for the Greater Manchester Police Federation said:
“Wishing our colleagues well”.
