Police dog Anya helped track two people allegedly fleeing from police in the Swan Valley this morning.

POLICE deployed their Air Wing officers and Dog Squad to track a man and a woman seen acting suspiciously in Jane Brook this morning.

Police arrived at Hilliger Turn in Jane Brook about 2am and heard people running over a wooden fence.

They released police dog Anya to track the two people through a nearby park and into a paddock.

An unregistered 4WD utility was then seen travelling through the paddock but lost control and came within 20m of Anya and her handler.

The driver regained control, made it to a sealed road and sped off.

Police Air Wing officers followed the vehicle until it was abandoned and the occupants ran south near Bells Rapids.

Air Wing officers directed Anya to the area and she located the two lying in the river bed.

Police arrested a 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman.

No charges have been laid and inquiries continue.
