Two teenagers will face court today, after they allegedly led police on a pursuit around Lake Macquarie and the Central Coast. 

At about 7:00pm yesterday (Tuesday the 31st of October, 2023), officers attempted to stop a Honda station wagon which they believed was stolen on the Pacific Highway at Kanwal. 

When the vehicle failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated, however it was terminated a short time later due to safety concerns.  

With the assistance of PolAir, the vehicle was located at Toukley before it came to a stop along The Esplanade at Swansea.

The two occupants fled on foot into nearby bushland, but were located a short time later.

The boys, aged 15 and 16, were arrested and taken to Belmont Police Station.

They’ve both been refused bail and will face a children’s court today.
