Peel Regional Police say two people are in custody after four vehicles including two police cruisers were damaged as police tried to stop a stolen vehicle in Mississauga.

Police say they received a call Monday at 9:39 p.m. regarding a disturbance on Sherwood Mills Boulevard, which is located near Mavis Road and Eglinton Avenue West. 

"As officers arrived on scene, they noticed a vehicle attempting to leave that residence. So officers followed that vehicle, attempting to perform a traffic stop on that suspect vehicle," said Const. George Tudos. 

"That suspect vehicle then rammed one of the police cruisers, resulting in a collision with two of our police vehicles, the suspect vehicle and also a civilian vehicle."
