A 24-year-old Grantham man has been arrested and bailed by police on suspicion of criminal damage and affray following an incident at a jewellers on Wednesday.

It was reported a man jumped through the first floor window of John Cussell’s jewellers in Grantham. Police say they were called to reports of an incident at just after 1pm.

Police cordoned off the front of the shop while scenes of crime investigators went in. A witness says he saw a man being arrested by police after running down Westgate and into another jewellers, Houghton, at the bottom of Dysart Road.

Graham Churchill told the Journal: “He ran straight into the jewellers and I thought that’s weird. A minute later he came out and I suppose he may have been trying to hide. Then about six police cars came along. They pushed him up against a wall. They took him away, holding his arms and legs.”

Police are appealing to anyone who may have relevant information about the incident to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 169 of February 4. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
