    The incident is believed to have taken place at 1am that morning.

    A number of power tools and equipment were taken from the vehicle which the victim had left locked and secured before going to bed the night before.

    Officers are carrying out a number of enquiries to find who was responsible.

    Thieves gained access to the store and a Toyota 4X4 vehicle was used to pull the ATM from inside the premises however it was left unopened at the scene and the thieves made off empty handed.

  • Operation to target begging and street drinking in city centre

    Three days of action have taken place in the city centre this week to move beggars and street drinkers out of the area.

    Between Monday and Wednesday (17 to 19 July) officers from the city centre neighbourhood team engaged with beggars, street drinkers, and rough sleepers and used Section 35 dispersal orders to move a number of them on.

    The powers allow officers to order anyone who they believe to be committing anti-social behaviour, the category for which these offences fall within, to leave the area and not return for 48 hours.

    On Monday, 28 people were stopped and spoken to of which four Section 35 orders were issued and of those issued two people were arrested for breaching these orders. Five people were arrested for being wanted for other outstanding offences and one person was stopped and searched under Section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.

    On Tuesday, 17 people were stopped and spoken to of which five Section 35 orders were issued. Two people were arrested for being wanted for other outstanding offences and one person spoken to and alcohol seized.

    On Wednesday, 12 people were stopped and spoken to of which no Section 35 orders were issued however an arrest was made for a breach of an earlier order given. Two people were arrested for being wanted for other outstanding offences and two warnings were issued for begging offences.

    Inspector Manjit Atwal, Central Leicester Neighbourhood Policing Area commander, said: “This operation was carried out in response to concerns raised by local businesses about issues with those living and drinking on the streets.

    “While a number of dispersal orders have been given, we have found that giving a dispersal order isn’t always the best and most appropriate course of action. With some of the vulnerable people we have spoken to, advice and support has been given to encourage them to find accommodation or assistance from the many organisations and groups we have within the city who are there to help.”

    Inspector Atwal continued: “Anti-social behaviour of this nature is not something that is always reported to us and we would like to remind businesses and those who live and visit the city centre to report concerns around this behaviour to us.

    “The operation has received positive feedback and we will continue to work closely with our partners to ensure Leicester remains a safe and welcoming place to visit, work and live, and we will carry out similar operations in the future if necessary.”

  • Force launches week of action around knife crime

    Knife carriers will be the subject of targeted operations next week, as officers from Leicestershire Police launch a week of action around knife crime.

    The force will be running a series of both operational and educational activities with the aim of increasing awareness of the dangers of knife crime among young people, and disrupting offenders who carry knives and other bladed weapons.

    The activity is part of the ongoing #LivesNotKnives campaign which aims to reduce the number of knife-related offences in the city, to educate and inform young people of the dangers of carrying knives, and to bring offenders to justice.

    Superintendent Shane O’Neill said: “Using a knife can have terrible consequences, not just for the victim but also the offender, their families and their friends.

    “Knife crime continues to be one of our key priorities as a force. One incident involving a knife is one too many. Our officers are working every day to tackle this issue head on and bring to justice those who commit knife crime.

    “The public have a major role to play in helping us to tackling these crimes. I would urge parents, families and friends to report any concerns they have around someone being in possession of a knife or other bladed weapon. We understand that reporting someone to the police can seem intimidating, but I’d remind people it they are able to report anonymously through Crimestoppers.

    “By helping us to remove knives from our streets, you could really make a difference to your local community’s safety, and could save a life.”

    The week of action begins tomorrow (Saturday 22 July) when officers will have a stall at Leicester City Council's Youth Festival which is taking place from 2pm - 6pm in Jubilee Square in the city.

    Anyone with information about knife crime or knife carriers should call Leicestershire Police on 101. If someone’s life is in immediate danger, call 999. For confidential reporting, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

  • Man arrested on suspicion of sexual assault - bailed

    A 36-year-old man arrested on suspicion of rape last summer has been bailed.

    It related to an offence in July last year in Eastleigh Road, Leicester.

    The 36-year-old was wanted on suspicion of committing the offence at an address in Eastleigh Road last summer.

  • Man injured at St Nicholas Place underpass

    Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding an incident that happened in Leicester city centre earlier this morning (Thursday 20 July).

    Shortly after 4am police were called to St Nicholas Place underpass following reports that a man had fallen onto the underpass.

    The man, believed to be in his 20s, was treated at the scene by ambulance crews and taken to the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham where he is reported to be suffering from life-threatening injuries.

    The southbound underpass was closed to enable an investigation of the area to be carried out, but has been reopened in the last few minutes.

    The road closure inevitably caused delays for motorists and it will take some time yet for congestion to clear.

    Police would like to hear from anyone who may have been in the area of the underpass and Vaughan Way around 4am this morning and who may have witnessed something.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Leicestershire Police on 101 quoting incident 80 of 20 July.

  • Non-stop collision on road between North and South Kilworth

    Leicestershire Police is appealing for witnesses to a non-stop road traffic collision in which a 19-year-old man was knocked off his motorbike on the road between North and South Kilworth.

    The police were called at 4.45pm to South Kilworth Road at its junction with Dag Lane on Tuesday 18 July. A motorcyclist had been knocked off his motorbike following a collision with a blue Ford Focus. The occupants abandoned the car at the scene and got into another car – a black Ford Focus – and drove off towards Market Harborough and the motorway.

    The motorcyclist was airlifted to the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire with a suspected broken arm and leg.

    PC Charlie Amodio, from the Tactical Roads Policing Team (TRPT) said; “We are obviously keep to trace the people involved in this collision as quickly as possible. The blue Ford Focus has been recovered by the police but we need to trace the black Ford Focus and the people in it.”

    If anyone has any information about this collision please call Leicestershire Police on 101 with incident number 488 of 18/7/17.

  • Woman assaulted by burglary suspect

    An elderly woman who heard a burglary taking place in her neighbourhood has been assaulted.

    The victim, 75, heard the sound of glass being smashed at a nearby address at around 9.50am on Monday (17 July), and went outside onto Asquith Boulevard to see what was happening.

    She phoned police and it was at this point she was knocked to the ground by one of two men.

    Officers attended the scene and the victim who suffered significant bruising to her head and lower lip and grazes to both hands was taken to hospital for treatment.

    She has since been discharged.

    One of the suspects has been described as wearing a grey hooded top, the other man was wearing a white jacket.

    The men had gained entry to the nearby property by smashing a rear ground floor window.

    At this stage it is unknown what was taken from the address.

    PC 1988 Atchison, the investigating officer, said: “We are appealing to the public for help to identify who was responsible for the assault and also for the burglary.

    “If you were in the area of Asquith Boulevard at around this time and saw anyone acting suspiciously or the victim being assaulted, we would like to hear from you.

    Call 101 if you can help and quote crime reference 17*304114

  • Search continues for wanted man Sean

    Police searching for wanted man Sean Cawthray, also known as Perry, have issued a renewed appeal in a bid generate more information about his whereabouts.

    Cawthray, 46, recently changed his name to Perry and also uses the surname Goldthorpe. He was last seen at his probation-approved address in Leicester city centre at 2.pm on Monday 19 June. He failed to return later that day, and as a result is in breach of his prison licence.

    Perry is white, about 6ft tall, of slim build with short cropped dark hair and blue eyes. When last seen in Leicester he was wearing grey-coloured shorts and a grey short sleeve T-shirt emblazoned with a large ‘23’ motif in white on the front. He was also wearing black trainers and was carrying a grey and black backpack.

    Detective Inspector Nicole Main from the force’s offender management unit, said: “We would like to thank everyone who has, so far, shared our appeals and reported possible sightings. Despite the appeals we’ve issued our search for Perry continues and we would ask people to look at his photograph and contact us if they have seen him since 19 June.

    “Extensive enquiries are continuing to locate Cawthray and anyone who sees him should not approach him but call the police immediately. Even if you’re not 100% sure about any sightings we would ask that you still contact us as we can quickly eliminate any possible leads from our enquiries.”

    Cawthray is also known to have links to Bridlington and Leeds in Yorkshire and Suffolk. We would ask people living and working in those areas to keep a look out and contact their local police station or Leicestershire Police if they see him.

    Anyone who has seen Cawthray or someone who matches this description, or may know where he could be, is asked to call 101, quoting Leicestershire’s incident number 95 of 29 June.

  • Force support for E-Safety campaign launched today

    Leicestershire Police is supporting an E-Safety campaign launched today to raise awareness of cybercrime while giving essential advice and guidance about how to stay safe online for all internet users. It also aims to raise funds to expand The warning Zone, the unique, interactive learning experience in Leicester which teaches life skills to the county’s children.

    The hope is to expand the charity’s innovative E-Safety learning zone so more children can be taught the skills they need to keep themselves safe online and prevent them falling victim to online threats such as cyber-bulling, online grooming and seeing inappropriate content.

    The campaign, launched today by The Leicester Mercury, comes at a time when offenders are increasingly using the internet and technology to harm children, whether it is through online activity, social media, mobile phones or gaming. It’s essential parents and carers do all they can to reiterate online safety to their children and be aware of the various sites and apps they are using and of the risks they pose.

    The force is working with the Leicester Mercury to provide the most up-to-date advice and tips to ensure everybody can stay safe online, covering topics such as sextortion, banking malware, fraud, hacking and viruses, phishing and how to report a cybercrime.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.
