LONDON, April 16: In a disturbing turn of events captured on video, a child joyrider is seen reversing a stolen police car at high speed along a pavement. The incident occurred in Kirkholt, Rochdale, after an officer abandoned the vehicle to pursue a suspect on foot.

Accompanying the video, posted on Sunday, is the caption: “Local kids steal a police car.” Greater Manchester Police have acknowledged the footage, stating that they are aware of the incident and believe they have identified the suspect “for further action.” However, the force did not disclose the age of the individual involved.

The 28-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, driving without a license or insurance, possessing a bladed article, assaulting an emergency worker, criminal damage, and breach of a court order.
