This is the moment Swedish police snared a suspected Isis fanatic following a high-speed chase and arrested him in relation to the Stockholm truck attack that saw at least four people killed and 15 injured.
The 39-year-old father-of-four was arrested in the northern suburb of Marsta after going on the run following the attack, reported Swedish newspaper Aftonblat.
The man, believed to be from Uzbekistan, was wearing a balaclava, with broken glass on his clothes. He reportedly confessed to being involved in the atrocity.
Police suspect he was behind the wheel of the truck, although other security sources reported in Swedish media said the driver is still at large.
He had posted Isis propaganda on Facebook and liked pictures of casualties after the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon in 2013, Aftonblat reported.

 During the attack, which happened around 3pm local time, a hijacked 30-tonne truck ploughed down pedestrians before crashing into a shopping centre and bursting into flames.
One witness said a pram was hurled into the air and desperate pedestrians ran for their lives as the lorry crushed everything in its path. 
Three men jumped out from inside the lorry and opened fire before trying to stab pedestrians, witnesses said. 
Two men were tackled to the ground and arrested. Police questioned them but said they were not suspected of any crime. 
Police released CCTV of the man who ran away, who was wearing a green jacket, white shoes and a grey hoodie.
Officers said the first suspect arrested on Friday evening in Marsta resembled the man in the appeal photos.
Hundreds of shoppers had to flee for their lives after the articulated lorry rammed into the corner of the Ahlens department store.
Horrifying images of the aftermath showed blood smeared on the roads and bodies covered by blankets.
Following the lorry crash, armed terrorists were seen running into Stockholm's Central railway station and opening fire. Two people were also said to have been stabbed.
Spendrups Brewery said the truck belonged to its company and was stolen.
The vehicle's original driver, who has not been named, was hurt in the hijacking after trying to cling to the vehicle.
He had climbed out of the cab while delivering its cargo of beer. At least one man, wearing a balaclava, took the chance to climb in and drove off, knocking the victim over as he tried to get back on board. He was injured, but not seriously.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has laid a bouquet of red roses and lit a candle outside the Ahlens store. 
The terror attack came just 16 days after the Westminster Bridge killer Khalid Masood used a car to murder five people before stabbing a policeman to death outside Parliament.
Last year, ISIS terrorists used trucks to kill dozens in Berlin and Nice.

  • Terror suspect jumped into cab of a beer lorry while its driver was making a delivery
  • Masked man sped through central Stockholm aiming at pedestrians before crashing into the Åhlens department store on Klarabergsgatan. At least four people died and 15 were injured
  • Witnesses heard shots fired and two suspects were filmed being detained in the street
  • A 39-year-old father-of-four was arrested in the northern suburb of Marsta
  • And there was a further arrest of a younger man at 11pm in nearby Hjulsta
