A MAN is currently assisting police with their investigations into an incident where a police vehicle was rammed at Mount Nathan early this morning.

Around 1.50am police patrolling in a marked police vehicle on Pademelon Pass observed a van stopped at the side of the road.

The van was located a short distance away.  The Dog Squad attended and located a man nearby and took him into custody without incident.

Police have allegedly located drugs, knuckle-dusters and property suspected of being stolen in the van.
