The Australian Federal Police (AFP) stated that just after 4 p.m., a white Jeep rammed into the side of the police vehicle being driven by 28-year-old Lila Rosemary Walto.
Annie di Silva, a hospitality worker who witnessed the incident, toldNews: "I looked in my rearview mirror and saw this white Wrangler, Jeep speeding up behind me going way quicker than the 80-kilometre speed limit."
She said she saw the car "aggressively swerve and clip the back of the white Camry, and at this point the Camry span out onto the median strip. It then takes off in the other direction away from the hospital."
Detective Acting Inspector Shane Scott said in a statement that they had noticed the white Jeep following them, and "the corrective services officers were taking evasive action for theirs and the detainee's safety."
Extremist attack in Somalia’s capital kills at least 9
MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A large explosion in Somalia’s capital killed at least nine people and injured eight others, a health official said Saturday. Dr. Mohamed Nur at the Medina Hospital told reporters that the toll reflected only the dead and wounded who were taken to the facility in Mogadishu where he works. “I am sure the number is bigger as some of the victims were rushed to other hospitals, such as the privately owned ones,” he said. The al-Shabab extremist group claimed responsibility.A Somali police spokesman said Mogadishu's police commissioner, Col. Farhan Mohamud Qaroleh, was the target of the attack but he was safe.
"This was a brazen attack which could have had very serious consequences for the people in the both cars, and potentially other motorists," he added. "Police have numerous resources throughout Canberra searching for the detainee and other offenders involved – our priority is to return this man to custody immediately."
Scott himself couldn't believe what had happened. "I've been a police officer for a long time here in Canberra, I can't recall anything like this," he said. "It's a little bit like a scene out of a Hollywood movie ... and it's certainly something that's of concern for us."
The statement reported that Quinn was handcuffed at the time of his escape, and the Jeep was located only about an hour after, as it had been abandoned and set on fire in a nearby suburb.
After police appealed for assistance from the public, they got word that the escapee was hiding out in a house in a neighborhood in Canberra, where he was found Friday night.
