NEWS JULY 2011

MAN ARRESTED AFTER ROBBERY AND BREAK IN
A man has been arrested in connection with a robbery and a break-in at a shop. At around 10.15pm on Sunday, July 31st, four friends were walking along an alleyway that leads onto West Park, Long Eaton. Two of the boys were aged 16 and two of them were 15. They were approached by two older youths, who assault the 16-year-olds and one of the 15-year-olds, demanding property from them. The robbers took a bag and a mobile phone from the group before running off.

Both men wore dark clothes and one was carrying a knife. The boys make their way to the Box Office, in Market Place, where staff raised the alarm.

Meanwhile, six hours later police received a call just before 4.15 reporting that two men were breaking into Holland and Barratt, in High Street, Long Eaton. Officers attended and arrested a 17-year-old youth nearby on suspicion of robbery and attempted burglary. He has been released on bail pending further inquiries.
