After sparking terror the alleged culprit fell asleep

But the man's call to officers in Karlsruhe was in fact genuine, and he was being chased by a baby squirrel.

Police spokeswoman Christina Krenz told the Guardian squirrels that have lost their mothers can focus their attention on one person as a replacement.

Police said the animal was well looked after.

A tiny squirrel chased a German man so aggressively that the man called the police for help Thursday.

But the chase ended when the squirrel, apparently exhausted, fell asleep.

It was a happy ending for both the pursued man and the baby squirrel - who was adopted by the Karlsruhe Police Department and named its new mascot.

Koepka ran off three straight birdies after he made the turn and came to the par-5 ninth at seven-under for the round. Woodland followed up a great start with a round good enough to get him in the record book at the PGA Championship.

She said the animals could be "very persistent, not just running behind someone, but entirely fixated on them".

Fearless cops in Germany came to the rescue of a man being chased down a a baby squirrel.

"It can be pretty scary ... the man didn't know what to do and so he called the police... he was certainly feeling a bit threatened".

"The squirrel has fallen asleep because of fright", they added.

Officers took the sleeping Karl-Friedrich into police custody, and then to an animal rescue centre, where it was said to be doing well.

According to the report, baby Karl-Friedrich is being well looked after in an animal rescue centre.
