Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

A 29-year-old man was ar­rested but later re­leased af­ter a per­son was found se­ri­ously in­jured at a prop­erty in Lough­bor­ough.

Po­lice were called to Rus­sell Street just af­ter 9am on Sun­day, Septem­ber 24, fol­low­ing re­ports of a dis­tur­bance at an ad­dress in the street.

Wit­nesses had re­ported see­ing two men go­ing into the ad­dress and then leav­ing on foot.

On arrival of­fi­cers found a 17-year-old with se­ri­ous leg in­juries. He was taken to hospi­tal and was in a sta­ble con­di­tion.

A po­lice spokesper­son said that the 29-year-old man who was ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent was re­leased from cus­tody pend­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion on Mon­day, Septem­ber 25.

A cor­don was ini­tially put in place in Rus­sell Street while en­quiries were con­ducted at the scene, but was later re­moved.

An anony­mous source tipped the Echo off and said that they saw the he­li­copter land on South­fields Park and that they fol­lowed po­lice sirens to Rus­sell Street in Lough­bor­ough.

They said that when they ar­rived at the scene of the in­ci­dent, around 20 po­lice ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing armed po­lice, were at the scene.

They said: “I saw the he­li­copter land and went out to see what was go­ing on.

“I fol­lowed the sirens and saw that there was a lot of po­lice cars, around about 18-20 ve­hi­cles were head­ing to­wards Rus­sell Street, and that an area near the Tay­lor Bell Foundry had been cor­doned off.

“Also the shop on the cor­ner of Rus­sell Street and Moore Lane was cor­doned off. “I could see blood on the floor.” A po­lice spokesper­son said: “If you have any in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent, or were in the area at round 9am on Sun­day and saw two men run­ning away from the street, call 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent 253 of 24 Septem­ber.”

A he­li­copter lands in the park dur­ing the in­ci­dent.
