A man has been arrested following reports of a suspect attempting to burgle houses. Officers tracked down the man in Adams Park Way, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, shortly before 2am on Monday, April 18.

A 42-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary, attempted burglary, assault and assaulting an emergency worker.

Detective Sergeant Jo Eaton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Officers quickly responded to the report from a member of the public. Armed with information and a description they were able to swiftly bring a suspect into custody.

“Ultimately nothing was taken but incidents like these can cause victims and homeowners emotional distress, so we will always do everything we can to find those responsible. We have said time and time again that assaults on our officers and other emergency service staff will never be tolerated, but thankfully the officer, in this case, was not seriously injured.

“We would ask anyone with any CCTV footage or information on what happened to get in contact with the police as it may help with our investigation.” The man remains in police custody.
