A man was arrested at Findon overnight after being caught on a fence while trying to run from police.
Police were called to Trimmer Parade, Findon just before 3am on Wednesday 27 February after reports of someone smashing windows at a house under construction. The witness yelled out and the suspect ran off.
Police searched the area and spotted a suspect nearby, who ran off when the patrol approached. They lost sight of him, but soon found him dangling upside down from a 6-foot fence by his underwear after he became caught while trying to jump the fence.
The 23-year-old Seaton man was arrested and charged with unlawfully on premises, breach of bail and carry offensive weapon after a knife was found in his pocket. Investigations into the property damage are continuing.
He was bailed to appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.
