Herald Sun: Moama police car repeatedly rammed by armed man in suspected stolen ute

A man armed with a rifle used a suspected stolen car to repeatedly ram a police car to escaped capture at Moama, on the Victorian-NSW border.

NSW Police said officers from Murray River Police District were patrolling Redgums Dr when at 11.30pm on Sunday, April 4, they noticed a man running towards a white Ford Falcon utility.

Police said the ute was believed to be stolen and as officers approached they saw the man was armed with a rifle.

The man was described as 175cm tall, wearing dark clothing with his face covered at the time.

Police said the driver got in the ute and allegedly drove towards the marked police car, ramming it several times before reversing through a metal fence.

NSW Police said the ute was last seen driving in an easterly direction along Perricoota Rd.

Police said no officers were injured and the police car received only minor damage.

Police said an investigation had begun and appealed to anyone with information to come forward.
