On Sunday a Perth police car turned a corner and officers heard a loud thud in the boot.

After chasing 31-year old Ali Hood for four days in relation to an armed robbery, he escaped by jumping out of the car at the intersection.

He was quickly recaptured – only 150m away.

Today the ASX Small Ords is down 0.09 per cent to 2,917 points and the ASX 200 is down 0.46 per cent to 6,742 points.

ANZ-Roy Morgan consumer confidence slipped 2.1 per cent this week. ANZ head of Australian economics David Plank said the result was disappointing considering strengthening global macroeconomic conditions, the reviving housing market and Australia’s trade surplus.
