A man accused of ramming into police cars to evade capture earlier this month, was captured in Nowra on Friday night
Thirty-year-old Joshua Duke, who was declared armed and dangerous, was the centre of a state-wide alert after he managed to evade officers in a separate car chase through South Nowra.
About 11pm on January 11, highway patrol officers allegedly attempted to stop the man's white Toyota LandCruiser on the Princes Highway near Foxground.
It is alleged the four-wheel-drive stopped before it reversed into the police car, forcing two officers to jump out of the way. The car then drove off, police claim.
Days later, police attempted to arrest the man in Nowra when he allegedly ran from officers and fled in a stolen Ford Ranger ute.
The pursuit was later terminated and the man escaped.
On Friday a large section of the South Nowra area was cordoned off by police after Duke crashed an allegedly stolen four-wheel-drive following a police pursuit that started in East Nowra.
Duke evaded police and the dog squad in bushland, despite an aerial search.
He was spotted about 6.30pm on Friday and arrested after a vicious wrestle during which two police sustained injuries.
He was charged with three counts of robbery while armed with a dangerous weapon, two counts of not stopping after a police pursuit, and resist and assault police.
Duke appeared before a special sitting of Nowra Local Court on Saturday, was refused bail and reappears in court in Nowra today.
