Armed police were called to a street in east Hull in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, May 14) after reports of an aggravated burglary.

A Humberside Police spokesperson said officers were in attendance in Arundel Close, near New Bridge Road, after receiving a call at around 2.10am from a member of the public. The caller reported that three men had entered a property with what were believed to be knives, before fleeing the scene.

For the safety of the public, armed officers were immediately deployed and conducted extensive lines of enquiries, including an area search, and house to house to establish the circumstances surrounding the report, the spokesperson said.


An eyewitness told Hull Live that police “kept residents indoors and were there for some time”. They said: “There were about five marked police cars and three unmarked cars.”

Detective Sergeant Ian Holland said: “We are in the early stages of our investigation. However, I would like to reassure communities that so far, our enquiries have led us to believe this to be an isolated incident between individuals known to each other.

“If anybody has any information that may assist our investigations, or if you have any dashcam, doorbell or CCTV footage of the area around the time of the incident, please contact us our non-emergency number 101 number, quoting log 38 of May 14. If you would prefer to report information anonymously, you can do so by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
