About 11.35pm yesterday a vehicle failed to stop for Police on Henderson Road, Flaxmere.
A pursuit was initiated and the vehicle came to a stop a short time later on Swansea Road.
The driver, a 39-year-old man, then exited the vehicle.
He assaulted an officer before fleeing on foot.
The foot chase ended when the driver was located at a property on Canaervon Drive.
