TWO people were arrested at Bulli after a police vehicle was rammed in Wollongong today.

About 2.50pm today (Thursday), a marked Highway Patrol vehicle was rammed by a black Commodore on Flinders Street, Wollongong.

Both officers in the vehicle were not hurt, however, the vehicle was significantly damaged.

Another highway patrol vehicle pursued the Commodore north along Flinders Street into Montague Street where the pursuit was terminated due to erratic driving.

The vehicle was found dumped soon after in Ocean Park, Woonona, where three people were seen running from the car.

A perimeter was established by officers from Wollongong Police Area Command, POLAIR and the Dog Squad.

A woman was arrested on nearby Bulli Beach, and a man was arrested on Franklin Avenue, Bulli.

They were taken to Wollongong Police Station where they are assisting with inquiries.

A search continues for the third person.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000
