Search­ing for two brave men

Nottingham Post - - NEWS -

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

#We­want­toshowourap­pre­ci­a­tion”. A spokesper­son for Der­byshire Po­lice con­firmed that the male was recog­nised by an of­fi­cer and was wanted on sus­pi­cion of “sev­eral of­fences”.
