A man and a woman, suspected of ramming a police car in a Fyshwick car park, will face court on theft and driving offences.
The pair, a 31-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman, were arrested by police near the South Point shopping centre in Tuggeranong on Thursday afternoon.
It's alleged the pair stole mobile phones worth an estimated $5000 from a store in Belconnen on Tuesday.
Police say they saw the pair in a black Mazda 6 sedan in a Fyshwick car park on Wednesday afternoon during a search for the two alleged offenders.
It's there the driver of the car allegedly rammed a police car in an attempt to escape arrest.
Police say they again tried to intercept the car in Canberra's north in a pursuit, but the pursuit was stopped due to safety concerns.
The pair were then spotted again travelling together in a silver Holden Commodore from Canberra's north to the south.
They were followed to South Point shopping centre, where police arrested the woman, who allegedly tried to sell the stolen mobile phones.
The man was found a short time later by officers, after he attempted to flee the scene.
The man has been charged with theft, driving while suspended, breaching parole and two property damage charges.
The woman was charged by officers with theft and driving while disqualified.
The pair will appear before ACT Magistrates Court on Friday.
