Police said at around 8 pm on Friday, January 4, a suspected stolen car failed to stop for officers when signalled to do so on Broad Road in Limavady.
“A short time later police observed the car on Main Street. The car rammed the police car in an attempt to make off.”
One officer suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police said one arrest was made at the scene but two young males who were in the car made off on foot in the direction of Connell Street.
“During follow-up enquiries police arrested a male in Derry.
“The car, a Vauxhall Zafira, is believed to have been stolen in Derry earlier in the evening.”
The two boys, who were arrested on suspicion of a number of motoring offences, have now been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
