Men arrested after Echuca chase to front court

TWO men who led Echuca police on a chase through the streets will face the Bendigo Magistrates Court this afternoon.

The men, aged 20 and 21, were arrested this morning over a variety of offences including assaults and burglaries.

Both men were arrested at a home in Ogilvie Avenue at 11.10am.

Sergeant Richard Zakrzewski said friends of the offenders had helped the men evade police.

“They were jumping over back fences and things like that. People in the area were assisting them, which made it a little bit more difficult. But they were eventually detained."
