Burglar swiftly arrested after attempted break-in

Police swiftly arrested a burglary suspect after reports of an attempted break-in at a block of flats.

Officers were called to Oakdale Road, Arnold, at around 8.45pm yesterday (5 October 2022) when a resident spotted three men in balaclavas outside his home in a car parking area.

Police arrived at the scene and rapidly arrested a 33-year-old man on suspicion of a residential burglary.

Officers also seized a knife, and will be carrying out further inquiries and analysing CCTV footage to trace the other offenders.

Detective Sergeant Joanne Eaton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “These offences can be very upsetting for victims who have their daily life disturbed by criminals.

“We never underestimate the impact these offences have on people and work tirelessly to gather evidence and track down the people responsible.

“Officers arrived at the scene quickly and detained a suspect.

“I am pleased the suspect is now in custody and our investigation continues.

"Can I please ask that anyone with information give us a call on 101, quoting the incident number 655 of October 5 2022."
