12 Years In Jail For Peterborough Man Who Terrorised A Family And Then Robbed Them
Axeman Arrested In St Neots
An armed police operation near a school in St Neots has led to the arrest, for a second time in two days, of the same man.
Around 10 o'clock yesterday morning (Thurs 2nd July), a man was seen with an air-rifle near the Bushmead School in Eaton Socon, that led to the lock-down of the school for around two hours.
A man in his 20s was later arrested and released on bail.
24 hours on from the first sighting of a man with a weapon, and once again the school was placed in lock-down after reports of the same man in the same area, this time with an axe.
Armed police arrived and surrounded a block of flats in Duke Road in Eaton Socon, a man was arrested at lunchtime.
This afternoon (Friday 3rd July), Cambridgeshire Police told Heart:
"We can confirm the person arrested following incidents of a man carrying an air rifle in Eaton Socon yesterday and a man carrying an axe in St Neots today were the same man, a 25 year-old man from St Neots, in custody."
