Police quash ‘body part’ rumours after naked man incident in Grimsby

A naked man who fled a house in Grimsby was not carrying a body part, police said today (Monday).

Detectives are investigating the incident which happened at 4.15pm on Saturday on Convamore Road.

Some witnesses had reported the man had a badly wounded – or severed – hand when he smashed through the front window of the property and went into a nearby shop.

Detective Inspector Rhod Troake of Humberside Police said: “Following an incident on Convamore Road in Grimsby, a man was taken to hospital where he was treated for injuries and has since been released.

“We are aware of speculation that the man was carrying a body part, however this is not the case.

“Several lines of enquiry are ongoing to determine the exact circumstances that led to the man’s injuries.”

Two people were arrested in connection with the incident and remained in custody.

“I want to reassure the community that we believe this to be an isolated incident with no further threat to the public,” said Det Insp Troake.
