A NCD Zone 3 Response Unit went to check the area.

There was one Suspect who was outside the vehicle , but when he saw Police approaching he attempted to run away when a member of the Zones Response Unit chased him down and apprehended him while the other members in the Police vehicle gave chase to the white sedan which sped off.

Other Police units responded quickly by blocking off escape routes.
