Citizen’s arrest follows dramatic chase

A MAN has been taken down by witnesses after a dramatic chase through Brisbane today.

Footage from the police chopper Pol-Air shows a vehicle which police said was stolen, speeding through red lights from Wynnum to the CBD, driving on the wrong side of the road and at one point travelling at more than 100km/h along Musgrave Rd through Coopers Plains, police allege.

The car went through the Clem 7 tunnel before exiting at Bowen Hills, continuing through Herston and then heading south over the William Jolly Bridge to South Brisbane.

Police allege the car crashed into a number of parked cars at the Logan Rd and Deshon St intersection at Woolloongabba, trapping a 52-year-old woman in her car. She escaped with minor injury.

The car eventually came to a stop near a construction site.

"A man fled the vehicle on foot and allegedly assaulted a female member of the public as he ran from the scene," police said in a statement.

Witnesses chased the man on foot before two construction workers eventually held him under citizen's arrest until police arrived.

A 21-year-old man was this afternoon in police custody.

The car was stolen from a home on Harcourt St, New Farm, police said. The vehicle's owner used a phone app to track the car thanks to an iPad that was left in the car. The car was tracked to an address in Wynnum this morning, before the chase.
