Run with a cry into the street (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

scoot

Here is my best explanation:

'run' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'a cry into the street' is the subsidiary indication.

'a cry' becomes 'coo' (coo is a kind of cry**).

'into' indicates putting letters inside.

'the street' becomes 'st'.

'coo' inserted into 'st' is 'scoot'.

'with' is the link.

(Other definitions for scoot that I've seen before include "Move with a rapid darting motion", "Dart off", "Depart quickly (does not contain H)", "Leave quickly", "Move rapidly" and "Skedaddle".)
