A quad bike rider has fled after leading police on a pursuit
through the city this morning.
Police were called to Riccarton after members of the public
saw the man riding erratically about 10.40am, Inspector Mike
Coulter of southern police communications said.
Police had found the quad bike on Golden Elm Lane, about five
minutes after the chase began, but the rider was nowhere in
the area, he said.
"The guy abandoned the quad bike and did a runner through
some properties and alleys.
"(Police) were talking to some people, but as far as I'm
aware they haven't made an arrest yet," Mr Coulter said.
