Police responded to a burglary in progress on Wednesday (5th January). Officers from GMP Trafford South responded to reports of a burglary in progress on Brooklands road to assist officers from Wythenshawe police station
The suspect, named by police as Carl Leather of Conway road, Sale was arrested after he was seen jumping from a first floor window of the property in attempt to evade police officers.
Following a short foot pursuit through neighbouring gardens the suspect was eventually detained by officers and found to be in possession of jewellery taken from the property.
Mr Leather, who was previously jailed for 3 years for a burglary from an address in Sale in 2013 was remanded into custody to appear at Manchester magistrates today (06/01/2022) where he has been further remanded to Manchester Crown Court on 10/02/2022.
A male has been arrested and charged with 12 sexual assault incidents which happened along the Bridgewater Canal in Sale, Altrincham, Stretford and Old Trafford.
In each incident the male approached the female victim from behind whilst riding a mountain bike before touching them inappropriately and then cycling off. The offender is described as around 5ft tall, of slim build and young in appearance.
He has most often been described as wearing dark clothing.
The incidents understandably sparked concerns in the community with one person commenting on GMP’s original post;
“The offender will only grow in confidence as the dates of each reported incident show, more likely they will progress from a touch to a full on attack within weeks, you know roughly what time and areas these attacks happen, get boots on the ground and nip it in the bud before he steps it up a level!”
CID set up a dedicated operation which involved several units working together. The neighbourhood teams have been cycling along in full high visibility uniform, there were officers in plain clothes walking along the canal path.
An officer from one of Trafford specialist units spotted the suspect and made the arrest whilst near Sale. The suspect from the Sale area, has been remanded to prison pending his court date next month.
Great work from all involved in getting this male off our streets.
The opportunist was caught on a Ring video doorbell trying a car door in Brooklands.
The man, dressed in dark clothing, wearing a baseball cap and facemask walked up a driveway on Cranleigh Drive at around 2.15am on Friday, 19th February and tried the handle of a car door hoping to find it unlocked.
