Context : MC and the school's Public Moral Team are chasing down a strange creature .But MC found him sit on top of a statue (?) which was engraved on to the wall of the school's clock tower, and eating some kind of a citrus fruit .

I don't understand the meaning of verb in 連中を巻いてきたのか? (my guess is "Had it already escaped from the Public Moral Team ?" but i'm not sure) Much thanks if anyone can help me understand.



The Strange Creature: 「なー……! んなー!」

    That's probably a typo for 撒く, which means to lose someone who's chasing you.

    My dictionary says this: ま・く【撒く】③ 〔「巻く」とも〕同行者などに自分の居所がわからないようにする。「尾行をまんまと―・く」

  • @aguijonazo Which dictionary? デジタル大辞泉 and 明鏡 do not recognize 巻く as a valid kanji for this meaning.

    @naruto - It’s スーパー大辞林, which is included in the standard dictionary app on Mac and iPhone. It’s also found here.
