FREMANTLE Police are searching for a man who escaped their custody last night.

Danny Jay Brooks (38) was arrested yesterday morning, charged with aggravated armed robbery, stealing a motor vehicle and breach of bail.

Yesterday afternoon he, along with a 29-year-old Gosnells woman who was also in custody, escaped from the Fremantle Police Station.

The woman was re-arrested on Market Street a short time later, but Mr Brooks was seen entering a Toyota Aurion parked at Fremantle Train Station, forcing the driver to drive off.

The driver was allowed to leave the car on the intersection of Stirling Highway and Canning Highway.

After a search, police found the vehicle crashed on Mandurah Road in Madora Bay at 11.50pm but the escapee is yet to be found.

Brooks is described as 170cm tall, with a large build, hazel eyes and a fair complexion.

Police believe he may have been injured in the crash and are urging the public not to approach him.

Anyone with information to his whereabouts can call police on 000 or 131 444.
