Wanted man took to roof following alleged robbery in Scunthorpe

Officers have arrested a wanted man on suspicion of attempted robbery this morning Friday 5 July after police found him on the roof of a Scunthorpe house.

A man was driven at by a car just after midnight on Priory Lane. The suspect in the car attempted to steal the victim’s phone before driving off.

The description given by the victim matched that of a man police want for a number of different offences.

That led officers to an address on Temple Road where they found the suspect and another man on the roof of a house.

After a short time the wanted man came down and police arrested him. He’s currently in custody while enquiries continue.

Humberside Police have seized a number of items from the property which they think could be linked to crime.

The victim wasn’t badly injured and no-one in the surrounding area of the house was hurt.

The second man came down a little bit later. He’s also been arrested.
