Man arrested after Grimsby assault
A man has been arrested following reports that a man suffered facial injuries in an assault at an address on Convamore Road in Grimsby this morning, Wednesday 22 July.
The attack happened shortly after 4am when a known man reportedly attended the address and assaulted the victim using a weapon.
Officers were deployed to carry out a search of the area and a 22-year-old man was arrested nearby on suspicion of assault, criminal damage and burglary. He remains in our custody whilst enquiries continue.
Anyone with information about the attack, who has not already spoken to us, is asked to call 101 quoting log 52 of 22 July or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A prolific offender has been jailed for 1000 days after she pleaded guilty of burglary and shop theft.
Claire Wilson, 46, of Frederick Street, Grimsby was given the sentence at Grimsby Crown Court, Monday 20 July.
The court heard how she had entered a flat on Cleethorpes Road on Sunday 2 February 2020 and stolen items from inside, continuing to search the property even when disturbed by the residents who asked her to leave.
She then attended a local shop where she attempted to steal a sandwich. When challenged by a member of staff Wilson used aggressive racist remarks towards him before leaving.
Upon attending a second shop Wilson again attempted to steal food items before she was arrested by officers and brought into our custody.
Detective Inspector Tom Kelly said: “Wilson is a prolific offender with hundreds of previous convictions and I welcome the sentence handed to her today.
“I cannot underestimate the impact that burglaries have on the victim, having a stranger inside your home is undoubtedly a distressing experience and for this to then be added to by the offender refusing to leave is simply despicable.
“We do everything we can to gather all of the evidence available to us, helping us to put offenders before the courts and secure sentences, like this one.
“I hope it serves as a stark warning to anyone considering committing offences of this nature. You will not get away with it.”
