An 18-year-old woman has been arrested after allegedly leading police on a brief pursuit through Perth’s southern suburbs, while driving a stolen car with seven children on board.
Police said car — which was reported stolen earlier this week — was spotted travelling north on the Mitchell Freeway in Como shortly before 1:00am on Sunday.
When officers attempted to stop the car it turned off the freeway, sparking a short pursuit in South Perth.
Police said the chase was aborted soon after when officers lost sight of the car.
It was found shortly after it crashed into a fence and a parked car in Como.
