A resident living opposite said: “The driver had tried to ram it but got stuck.

“We heard this noise about 5.30am that sounded like someone running on the gravel down the side of our house.

“Two of them who got out of the vehicle were chased one down Chapman Avenue by police and the other went down the side of the property opposite.

“A neighbour said one of them had tried to get over their fence but we believe they were both caught.
