After managing to evade police, the bizarre getaway continued with him hiding in a man's chicken shed before making another escape

A fugitive prisoner is still on the run after fleeing from police by running over rooftops in just his underpants.

He then forced a man in his sixties to drive him across Salford, Manchester, before bundling him out of the car and speeding off.

The wanted man began his dramatic escape by fleeing from a house on the East Lancs Road in Boothstown at 9.30am today after it was raided by officers from the Serious Organised Crime Unit.

He ran across the rooftops of several houses in just his underwear before eventually taking refuge in a man's chicken shed.

After being discovered by the 63-year-old homeowner he forced him to let him into his house on Birchfield Drive where he began to threaten him.

He eventually persuaded the man to drive get into his car and drive him away from the house, the Manchester Evening News reports.

However when they got to the Walkden area of Salford, the victim was ordered out of the vehicle, a black Subaru, and the offender sped off.

The police helicopter was scrambled as part of a frantic search for the man, believed to have absconded from a prison in the region.

Meanwhile a warning was issued to local councillors and other officials about the incident.

Officers carried out searches at properties in Boothstown, Mossley Common, Walkden and Farnworth throughout yesterday afternoon.

A total of people were arrested on suspicion of harbouring a wanted individual following in connection with the incident and were held in
custody for questioning. However the offender could not be located.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "The 63 year-old man was startled to find the offender, partially clothed, hiding in his chicken shed at his house.

"The offender has then gone into the victim's house where he turned aggressive and threatened the homeowner.

"Fearing he would be attacked, the man offered to drive the offender to wherever he wanted to go, which he duly did.

"When they got to the Walkden area, the victim was forced from his car, a black Subaru, and the offender drove off.

"Both the offender and the car are outstanding and inquiries are ongoing to trace both."
