Brookvale manhunt continues

Police say they are still searching for a man on the run from police in the Brookvale area since 7pm last night, 30 December.

The chase began after police noticed the young man driving a damaged Mercedes sedan, a dark grey silver, on Pittwater Road. A pursuit began when the man failed to stop as directed.

A short time later, officers located the abandoned Mercedes after it had crashed on Beacon Hill Road.

Police asked residents to stay inside during the search and to call Police if he is spotted.

There have been sightings at Brookvale McDonalds and one reader reported seeing the man heading towards McIntosh Street in Narraweena, which is information we passed onto Police at the scene.

He is described as Caucasian, aged in his early to mid-20s, has brown hair, and was wearing a grey jacket.

As inquiries continue, police are urging any person who may have dash cam footage or information about this incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
