You can do this using two different event pages:
page 1: moves normally. Use it when the player is not being chased.
page 2: chase the player. Activate it using a swtich that you turn on upon entering the room or leaving a hiding spot.

A hiding spot should just turn off the switch and the event stops chasing.

If this is what you want then it is easily done. One more thing: use two events for the hiding spot. one in front of it that turns the switch on, one on its entrance that turns the switch off. This way you don't have to worry about the event reaching the player inside because another event will block it.

EDIT: you can even use a single event with two pages for the hiding spot but then you have to add a move route to move the player inside by 1 step so that the event can be activated again when stepping on it.

Made a lot of progression today with my next chapter. It helps that I wrote an outline of what will happen. :)
