When hue-and-cry is raised in the city (day or night) for any felony, a complaint about the crime is to be lodged immediately by men who are subjects of the king, until the person pursued is captured or offers an attachment for answering the charge in court.

[The purpose here seems to be to close a loophole in relation to the problem addressed in Cap.4. Hue-and-cry was the act of an individual in alerting the neighbourhood to the very recent commission of a crime, sometimes also entailing raising public support for pursuit or arrest of a criminal.]
