A pizza delivery boy called police after being chased down a street by a man, wearing only his underwear, as he tried to collect payment for the delivery.

The call was made to police around 11 p.m. Wednesday, Dunedin Senior Staff Sgt Anthony Bond said.

When police arrived at the Carlye Rd property, Mosgiel, the undressed man asked the police to remove a top from his car on the street.

Police found ammunition in the car, which led to a search.

Four guns and approximately 200 pieces of ammunition were found and the man was arrested. He was then released pending further investigation, Bond said.

About 15 minutes later, police were called to the corner of Stenhope Cres and Middleton Rd in Corstorphine after a gray sedan driver ‘made an exception’ to a resident telling her to stop doing burnouts and threw a 51 barrel can at home, smashing glass.

Investigations were underway to locate the driver, Bond said.

Earlier that night, a woman had to be kicked out of her car after an accident with a car driven by a 45-year-old man. Both vehicles sustained “significant damage”.

The accident happened around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Falcon St and Kaikorai Valley Rd, Glenross.

Alcohol was allegedly involved and a blood sample was taken from the 45-year-old man, Bond said.

A spokeswoman for St John said two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle responded. Two patients were treated and taken to Dunedin Hospital in moderate and severe condition respectively, she said.

An investigation was underway.

Meanwhile, police continued to ensure that motorists do not drive drunk, with several checkpoints set up in the city, Bond said.

Additional police were working to check on licensed premises in the city, especially as many Christmas functions were taking place, but no issues were identified, he said.
