MELBOURNE, Australia (June 7) – A youth being chased by police in Melbourne helped himself to one of their bicycles to make good his escape … until he rode it into a police car. Police say the 15-year-old,was involved in a burglary and theft in Canterbury early yesterday. But the teenager gave them the slip by scaling fences and running through backyards. Police dogs tracked the youth to a block of flats. A police bicycle patrol left their bicycles outside the flats while they went inside and the youngster made the most of the opportunity – by stealing one of the bikes. But his good fortune didn’t last. He was arrested after colliding with a police car around 1.15pm, and taken to hospital with minor injuries. Police will interview the youth when he leaves hospital.
