NSW police arrest two after pursuit and crash at Gosford

Two men have been arrested following a police pursuit with a stolen motorcycle on the Central Coast today.

Just after 10.30am (Sunday 31 May 2020), a motorcycle, allegedly stolen from an Erina shopping centre, was seen travelling on Hely Street at Wyong. At the time, the rider and pillion passenger were not wearing helmets.

Officers from Brisbane Water Police Area Command attempted to stop the motorcycle on Enterprise Drive.

When it allegedly failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated before being terminated shortly after due to safety concerns.

The motorcycle continued travelling through the Central Coast area and was monitored by PolAir.

At the intersection of Erina Street and Henry Parry Drive, Gosford, the rider and another vehicle crashed.

The rider and passenger were thrown from the motorcycle and fled.

Shortly after, a 30-year-old man was arrested nearby.

The second man ran to the rooftop car park of a nearby abandoned shopping centre. Police followed on foot, before the man jumped a barrier, landing on a window ledge below.

With the assistance from Fire & Rescue NSW, Police Rescue and other specialist resources, the 23-year-old man was rescued and arrested.

Both men have been taken to Gosford Hospital, under police guard, suffering injuries sustained in the crash.

Inquiries continue.
