Two men were arrested for traffic-related offences, possession of offensive weapons and suspected drug-related offences after a police chase from Queensway to Alexandra Road on Wednesday morning (Apr 10).

Stompers Pei Leng, Wong and Allen alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos and a video taken near Anchorpoint Shopping Centre.

In the photos, a man can be seen in handcuffs near a black car that appears to have crashed into a motorcycle.

Wong told Stomp she saw about 40 police officers at the scene and sniffer dogs were there as well. Stomp is unable to confirm this.

"The filter lane was closed for more than four hours, causing a massive traffic jam," she said.

In response to a Stomp media query, the police said the Traffic Police were conducting a check on a car along Mei Ling Street at about 11.15am when the car driver suddenly sped off and subsequently hit a motorcycle.

"The car driver continued to move and after a brief pursuit, the car driver stopped his car along the slip road from Queensway into Alexandra Road," a police spokesman said.

The driver, a 21-year-old man, was arrested for traffic-related offences, possession of offensive weapons and suspected drug-related offences.

The passenger, a 19-year-old man, was arrested for suspected drug-related offences.

Police investigations are ongoing.
