MAN ESCAPES FROM FREMANTLE POLICE LOCK-UP
A 38-year-old man escaped from the Fremantle Police lock-up yesterday and is still on the run. Danny Brooks was arrested in the morning and charged with car stealing, armed robbery and breaching bail conditions, but he managed to escape from the High Street lock up and carjacked a vehicle at the Fremantle train station.
With him a 29-year-old woman also escaped but she was arrested again soon afterward.
The driver of the vehicle was later released and Brooks crashed the car on Mandurah Road around midnight last night. Police believe Brooks might have been hurt in the crash.
It will be interesting to find out how two people could escape from the Freo lock-up as that is obviously not acceptable.
