Met police stopped a suspected burglary in process on Rayners Lane yesterday evening arresting five suspects.
The incident happened just before 7pm when it was still daylight. Reports came into Harrow Online showing multiple emergency vehicles on site including an ambulance and a tactical response unit.
One of the female suspects needed to be taken to hospital after suffering a head injury during the incident.
One local resident commented on the Harrow Online Facebook page saying: “they were climbing in a window when we went past…. when we came back 15min later all the police were there!”
Another person commented: “I cannot believe how many similar posts there are on a regular basis on this page. I’m so glad I left this area. Awful.”
A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called to a residential address in Alexandra Avenue, Rayners Lane, at 18.53hrs on Saturday, 5 September to reports of a burglary in progress.
“Officers attended. Two women and three men were arrested at the scene on suspicion of burglary.
“One of the women required hospital treatment for a head injury but her condition has been assessed as non life-threatening.
The other four people have been taken into custody. Enquiries continue.”
