Australian car chase fugitive recaptured


Police in Western Australia have recaptured a man who escaped from custody following a high speed car-chase.

Colin Bradley Little led officers on a pursuit across Perth for several hours on Wednesday before he was caught and admitted to hospital.

He later escaped from hospital, as he was being pushed in a wheelchair.

The 22 year old has been charged with over 20 offences including armed robbery.

At one point in the police helicopter video he can be seen forcing a man, Simon Webb, out of his car in order to change vehicle.
