Crimebusting Croc

Man bitten by croc while fleeing police - Yahoo!7 News: "A man has been bitten on the head by a crocodile at Daly River, about 150 kilometres south of Darwin, while trying to flee police.

Police say they tried to contact the 40-year-old man at his house for much of yesterday, alleging he had breached his bail conditions.

They say each time they approached the house the man ran away to the long grass near the riverbank.

When police visited at 8pm ACST last night, the man again ran to the river.

A search for him failed but he turned up later at a nearby house bleeding from wounds to his head and hand.

The man claimed he had been bitten by a crocodile.

He was treated locally and then taken to the Royal Darwin Hospital this morning.

Acting Police Superintendent Tony Fuller says police are trying to see the 'funny side' of the incident."
