A teenager suspected of burglary was arrested after a city centre chase that saw him slide down the middle of an escalator bank.
Police described the chase as being “like a scene from a movie”
The 17-year-old local, believed to have been involved in a Burglary in Wyke on August 17, was spotted by officers in Bradford’s Kirkgate Centre on Friday.
A police spokesman said: “The man was proving difficult to locate until he was spotted by an officer doing some shopping in the city centre.
“It was almost like the scene from a movie as he ran away, slid down the centre part of the shopping centre escalator before climbing into a taxi.
“Luckily officers were in close proximity to him and he was detained and arrested.”
