TWO Gold Coasters have been charged after leading police on a chase through Helensvale yesterday afternoon.
It’s understood an 18-year-old woman and 40-year-old man were trying to evade police after being seen in a car driving at speed.
The pair allegedly fled from the car and ran through a house, assaulting an elderly lady inside.

Police say they then proceeded to jump a fence and swim across a river.
However both were located a short time later hiding in the yard of a residence on Riverdowns Crescent.
They will face court on Monday, charged with trespassing, serious assault, obstructing police and unlawful possession of weapons.
