A man and woman were arrested after being chased by police through the streets of Sheffield.Â Â
Officers from theÂ Sheffield East Response Team apprehended the duo following what they described as a 'short foot pursuit.'
Following their capture yesterday evening they were taken away for questioning on suspicion of being involved in a robbery outside the Park Hill Flats on Sunday evening.
