Police in Derry make two arrests following housing dispute in city centre street
1 Nov 2018
A housing dispute which took place in the city centre area of Derry this week resulted in two arrests. A PSNI spokesperson yesterday stated that police in Derry were called to the report of an incident in the Great James’ Street area at around 5.20pm on Tuesday, October 30. Various people had gathered and ‘a number’ of them were spoken to by police at the scene, resulting in two arrests. The spokesperson told the Derry News: “A number of people were spoken to and two men were arrested. “Two Community Resolution Notices were issued following interview.” A Community Resolution Notice (CRN) is an alternative way of dealing with less serious offences, allowing officers to use their professional judgement when dealing with offenders. One eyewitness said that students who were due to move into the address were caught up in the incident and it’s unclear whether they were able to proceed as planned. The eyewitness added that the locks were subsequently changed at the property in the wake of the incident.
