Three arrested following help from the public

Three people have been arrested with help from the public after a catalytic converter was stolen in Alum Rock yesterday (16 September).

A member of the public who saw three people trying to take a catalytic converter from his car alerted officers, before the suspects fled in a suspected stolen car.

The car failed to stop for police before it was abandoned and the group ran from it on Alum Rock Road.

With the help of passers-by, two teenagers and a man were arrested on suspicion of offences including dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and assault, after a member of the public was punched while trying to detain a suspect.

We would like to thank the members of the public for their quick thinking as investigations continue.

Anyone with information can contact us via Live Chat at between 8am and midnight, call 101 anytime or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Please quote crime reference 20BE/24517R/19.
