Police have thanked a member of the public after a man was arrested following an incident in Attleborough.

After a stop search in the Blackthorn Road area, a man fled the scene before being detained a short while later in the Bluebell Close area around 8pm on Tuesday. A 28-year-old was arrested on suspicion of drug offences and assaulting a police officer, and has been bailed until August 4.

Sergeant Marcus Wall from Thetford said: “After a PCSO was assaulted, the man guided other officers to the scene where the offender was eventually detained. Without his help, the suspect could have got away and the officer could have been injured further.”
