Police had to abort a town centre car chase after the fleeing suspect drove down an alleyway – almost knocking over a pedestrian.
Officers tried to pull over a white Renault Clio in Tavern Street, Stowmarket, at about 2.40pm on Tuesday, May 2.
The driver of the vehicle failed to comply and drove off down Onehouse Road, Windermere Road, Kingsmead Road and St Edmunds Road, before mounting a pavement and entering a walkway leading to Gainsborough Road, causing a pedestrian to take evasive action.
At that point, the pursuit was called-off due to potential danger to other members of the public, but the vehicle was found abandoned at about 3.50pm near Delius Close, where it was seized by police for being uninsured.
Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed any part of the incident. Anyone with information should call the Stowmarket neighbourhood response team on 101, quoting 32488/17.
