A 24 year old man who was arrested following a creeper burglary and a two vehicle rtc has been returned to prison having had his licence revoked. 

The RTC occurred on the Caw roundabout in Derry on Friday afternoon last after a police pursuit of the stolen vehicle.

It is not believed that anyone was seriously injured in this collision; however two police officers who were on foot were injured in their attempts to get out of the way when the stolen car drove at them. Another officer was injured when making the arrest.

The man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of burglary, two counts of attempted murder of police officers, breach of bail and various road traffic offences.

Police are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed a grey Skoda Superb in the area at the time or who may have witnessed the rtc to contact detectives at Strand Road Police Station.

The suspect has been released on bail pending further enquiries in relation to a number of other offences that he was arrested under suspicion for.

Detectives say investigations into these offences are continuing.
