Police vehicle damaged by youths in Berserker

A POLICE vehicle was damaged following an incident in Berserker early this morning, after police were called to a disturbance between a group of youths.

Police were called to High St around 3am, where they found a number of youths walking in the middle of the road.

As police approached the group in their vehicle, a male youth was pushed in front of the vehicle.

The vehicle was coming to a stop, and it is believed the youth may have been hit by the front passenger-side at low speed.

A second male youth armed with a bottle then struck front of the police vehicle a number of times, causing a smashed windscreen and minor damage to some panels.

As more police arrived on scene, all of the youths fled on foot. Police conducted extensive patrols but were unable to locate them.

Investigations are continuing.
