In Gliwice (Silesian Voivodeship), two teenagers were running away from the police on a scooter. The boys had no intention of stopping despite the beeps and lights. A second, unmarked police car had to join the chase. Finally, the recalcitrant refugees were stopped.
The incident took place on Tuesday evening (May 30) in Gliwice’s Zatorze. As reported by Sub-Insp. Marek Słomski, press officer of the Municipal Police Headquarters in Gliwice, during the chase the scooter driver performed many risky maneuvers.
“He avoided parked vehicles and drove on lawns and pavements. A second, unmarked police car quickly joined the chase. The fugitives were stopped on Mastalerza Street. It turned out that the 16-year-old himself did not have permission, and to make matters worse, he was carrying a passenger “- said the police officer.

He added that the scooter used by the teenagers had been stolen three days earlier in Knurów. “The owner lost it during what he thought was a buy-sell transaction and a test drive.
