A police pursuit through the Central Business District gave Echuca’s lunch crowd an unexpected side of drama yesterday.
Police spotted the man, 21, who is wanted for questioning over matters, at about 1pm in Annesley St near the Echuca Workers and Services Club and chased him on foot through streets and stores to the Echuca Primary School.
A fleet of police cars surrounded the school and officers searched the grounds and yards of surrounding houses.
Police then pursued the man back into the CBD and finally back out into a residential area where they lost sight of him.
Police said the man was not armed, dangerous or a threat to members of the public.
Carters of Echuca owner John Carter said the man ran through his store ‘‘dangerously quick’’.
‘‘Had there been children around
‘‘I thought something was amiss, with how quickly he was moving.
‘‘He could win the Stawell Gift if he wanted.’’
