Searching for two brave men
POLICE want to offer their thanks to two brave men who tackled an alleged offender to the ground in Long Eaton town centre.
The incident happened on Tuesday, December 4 on the canal bridge in Derby Road, Long Eaton, after what was described as a “lengthy pursuit”.
In CCTV footage, the men can be seen chasing the alleged offender and then bringing him to the ground. Officers have since put out a message on Twitter, to track down the pair who, they said, “put themselves in harm’s way” to help the police. The tweet from Erewash Response Unit reads: “On December the 4th 2018 following a lengthy foot pursuit, two #Longeaton lads selflessly put themselves in harm’s way to apprehend the offender!
“Unfortunately we know them only as Denham and Oliver, do you know them? If so please let us know. #Share
