Man Arrested After Pigs Heads Left Outside Solihull Community Centre
A man has been arrested after four pigs heads were dumped outside a community centre in Solihull.
West Midlands Police were called to the centre on Hermitage Road, on Sunday 12 April, after police were alerted by one of the centre's trustees.
CCTV footage showed the remains of the animals left outside the door.
Officers have been speaking with local people, reviewed the videos and looked at forensic evidence from the scene.
This morning, a 34-year-old man was arrested from an address in The Radleys, Marston Green, at around 1am. He's being questioned on suspicion of carrying out a religiously aggravated public order offence.
Chief Superintendent Alex Murray, from Solihull police station, said: "Solihull has a hard-earned reputation as a place where people from different backgrounds have really strong bonds.
“It is an area where communities are respectful and considerate of one another and when that harmony is disrupted by the actions of an ignorant minority, people should rest assured we will take action to ensure justice is served.
“In this case, a huge amount of effort has been involved in trying to find the arrested man, with addresses being tried again and again without let up. There will be no tolerance of any type of hate crime here in Solihull and we will do all we can to trace anyone we suspect of being involved in it.”
