A woman was arrested in Blackley, Manchester, Wednesday evening in connection with Monday’s suicide bombing at Manchester Arena. She was taken into custody following a late-night armed raid on a block of flats north of the city, Manchester police said.
Via The Independent:
A “huge bang” was heard as police raided the flats on Wednesday and witnesses described seeing special forces officers swoop on the address.
Residents said they heard what sounded like an explosion and saw a “huge police presence.”
Resident Alex Finnie described seeing a woman with dark hair and wearing a blue shirt with her hands cuffed behind her back pressed up against a window.
He said: “When the bang went I heard screaming and shouting and then they took the woman out.
“She was facing this way out the window and a couple of minutes later two armed police took her away.
“After the first one I heard loud banging on another door but on the same floor.”
The woman was driven away in a police van, he said, adding that armed police were preventing residents from accessing the twelfth floor.
Greater Manchester Police said: “This evening searches have been carried out in Blackley. These searches are connected to Monday’s horrific attack. A woman has been arrested at an address in connection with the investigation.”
