Two Brisbane men who allegedly pretended to be police officers have been charged after a violent early morning crime spree that left two victims terrorised and injured.

The two men, an 18-year-old from Capalaba and a 22-year-old from Wellington Point, broke into a home in the beachside Brisbane suburb of Manly at around 2 am on Saturday, police say.

The two fled on foot and the woman was hospitalised.

RCMP reveal details of violent central Alberta crime spree that resulted in officer-involved shooting

The RCMP provided details on Saturday about a chaotic crime spree in central Alberta a day earlier that resulted in officers firing their guns on two occasions.

Mounties in Sundre said they received multiple complaints of “erratic driving and threatening behaviour” involving the same vehicle on Friday. According to police, the suspect vehicle at one point rammed another vehicle and when the person inside got out, one of the people in the suspect vehicle “struck” him during an altercation leaving the victim with minor injuries.

Police said the suspect vehicle was determined to be stolen and was later spotted again in Rocky Mountain House. Officers tried unsuccessfully to stop the vehicle and at about 4:25 p.m., an RCMP officer tried to stop the eastbound vehicle north of Sylvan Lake.
