A pedestrian was nearly hit on a crossing by a Police car as officers drove at high speed. Mrs Winnie Wonte was slowly crossing the road just before 2030 BST on Thursday night.
Detectives said no-one was injured as the Police car came hurtling round the corner at speed, before emergency breaking to avoid Mrs Wonte then accelerating off and proceeding to a local fast food shop.
A police helicopter later joined the Police car and the air crew are believed to have shared a kebab.
The pedestrian slowly left the scene and moved off towards Ordsall, where she entered a house in Lasgar Avenue.
Firearms officers from Greater Manchester Police sealed off the house before Mrs Wonte from Ordsall, was led out. She is due to be questioned about her slow progress across the road. As it was near the fast food outlet's closing time, any delay in the arrival of the Police officers might have led to a failure to procure food.
A shopping bag and groceries was later recovered during a search of the area.
"This demonstrates the risks police officers can face whilst going about their daily duties," said Supt Huntley, of Salford CID.
"We are keen to speak to members of the public who may have any further information about slow pedestrians.
"They have already proven themselves to be an impedance to police and we will be doing everything we can to trace them."
Witnesses should contact Salford CID or Crimestoppers.
