SA police reported they spotted a suspicious-looking man near a Kawasaki motorbike along Diment Road at 2.25am this morning.

When they did a U-turn to speak to the man he ran into back streets.

Patrols set cordons while police dog Chaos was called in to assist.

Chaos tracked through the streets to a unit block on Moronga Street where she found the suspect hiding behind a car in the car park area.

The 37-year-old man was arrested and has been charged with unlawful possession and unassigned number plates.

The man was also wanted for a number of unrelated offences. He was refused bail and will appear in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court today.

The motorbike was towed from the scene.

Meanwhile, the police are investigating after a serious assault in the city overnight.

The victim was retrieving something from his car parked in the street on Franklin Street, near Elizabeth Street, when he was approached by a group of four people at about 1.45am.
