Second arrest after Sunderland crossbow attack threat
A second person has been arrested after the stunned occupants of a flat were threatened with a crossbow.
The incident in Darwin Street, Southwick, Sunderland, led to armed officers searching the city for possible suspects.
Northumbria Police confirmed yesterday that a 30-year-old man arrested shortly after last Wednesday’s incident has been freed under investigation.
A second man, aged 34, was arrested over the weekend and is also now released under investigation.
A force spokesperson initially said: “hey have not fired the crossbow, but then a number of windows at the address have been smashed. Nobody was injured but the occupants were left very shaken.”
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting log 1274 19/06/19
