A man who allegedly rammed a stolen car into a police vehicle - injuring the officer inside - before running off, has been found by police.

Christopher Muir, 35, was arrested in the Marton area this afternoon, following the alleged incident last night.

Police said earlier he had reversed a stolen vehicle into a police car before fleeing on foot.

"The officer driving the police car was treated for bruising and whiplash at Whanganui Hospital," a statement said.

Muir will appear in the Whanganui District Court tomorrow and will face multiple charges.
