1 JANDAKOT A MAN suffered serious leg injuries after jumping from a bridge in an unsuccessful attempt to evade police last week. South Metro Response officers were responding to a tripped alarm at a Jandakot dentist’s surgery about 3.30am on August 4 when they spotted a man about 500m from the scene. As officers approached, the man fled and jumped from the Berrigan Drive overpass down to the Kwinana Freeway. He suffered leg injuries during the fall and did not get far. Officers caught up to him at the side of the freeway. An ambulance was called to take the man to Fiona Stanley Hospital for treatment. Inquiries are ongoing with police aiming to match the suspect against CCTV images and forensic results.
