He was spotted hitting the M1 near Ourimbah in an allegedly stolen vehicle.

The dog unit, the tactical operations unit and a police helicopter swung into action to track down the man, who police allege engaged in a spate of robberies and break-and-enter.

Still on the run on Saturday, he allegedly stole another vehicle with a woman still inside. Police were told he let her off in Kangy Angy, a semi-rural suburb less than 10 minutes drive from Wyong, and took off again.

The man then allegedly rammed a police car giving chase at Ourimbah about 11am. About an hour later, police finally arrested him.

Police took him to Wyong Hospital under guard where he was treated for minor injuries.

On Sunday, the man, 54, was taken to Wyong Police Station and charged with 20 offences.

The charges included several counts of armed robbery and aggravated break and enter, and five counts of taking and driving a conveyance without the consent of the owner.
