Cops Notice Kids Acting Strange, Forming Human Arrow - Realize What They're Up To (Photos)

It was Good Friday and families gathered in a field in a small town in London to enjoy an Easter egg hunt, when a manhunt interrupted their festivities.

According to CNN, a police helicopter appeared overhead looking for individuals suspected of burglarizing a nearby building. Two men then raced across the field, and families knew they were in the middle of a police pursuit.

That’s when the children came to the aid of the police by laying on the field to form a human arrow in the direction of the assailants.

"The children quickly formed an arrow on the ground in the middle of a plowed field to guide the helicopter in the direction of the fleeing pair," a statement from police said. "The helicopter crew relayed this information to officers on the ground and a short time later two men were arrested."

Sgt. Paul Sochon from the National Police Air Service said is was like something out of a page of "an Enid Blyton adventure," the British author of the popular children's detective novel series "Secret Seven,” CNN reports. The two suspects were found and arrested, and Sochon described the children’s efforts as “invaluable.”
