A VIOLENT arrest following a police pursuit through the streets of Ipswich ended with a man and woman in custody and two police officers injured.

Police charged the pair following the alleged evade and assault police incident in Ipswich on Sunday night.

The Polair chopper tracked the vehicle from Goodna to Springfield after it allegedly evaded police on the ground, about 10pm.

The suspect vehicle drove into a fast food car park on Main St, Springfield Lakes, where the occupants allegedly tried to hijack another vehicle.

Police on the ground intervened and arrested a man and woman at the scene.

In making the arrest, a female officer sustained a fractured cheekbone, while a male officer sustained a shoulder and facial injury.

He was remanded in custody to appear again on February 15.
