Police dogs have helped catch a man and woman wanted over two attempted armed robberies on Christmas day in Queensland.
One of the duo allegedly hit a man in the head with a spanner after they were disturbed trying to break into a car in the driveway of a home at Ironbark, west of Brisbane, at about 7.50pm (AEST) last night.
Police claim the pair then flagged down a car in the same street, smashed a window and tried to steal property from the 21-year-old male driver but were unsuccessful.
They drove away in their own car and after evading a police patrol dumped the vehicle in bushland in nearby Rosewood.
A police dog squad unit found the duo hiding separately in the scrub.
The 37-year-old man allegedly hit a police dog and was bitten while being arrested.
Both he and a 21-year-old woman were treated in hospital for minor injuries and will face the Ipswich Magistrates Court on Friday.
