A 17-year-old boy and 18-year old man armed with machetes were arrested following a pursuit in snowy and icy conditions.

Officers spotted a Mini Cooper, believed to be linked to the aggravated burglary in Mansfield, heading along the A614 towards the Leapool Island.

The car sped off from officers who started an authorised pursuit shortly after 3.30pm on Sunday 24 January 2021.

The vehicle was being driven dangerously on treacherous roads before trained officers made tactical contact with the Mini.

Two suspects got out of the Mini, while it was still in motion, and fled on foot while the car collided with a parked vehicle.

Officers chased them on foot and the suspects, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, were quickly detained in Warren Hill Close, Arnold.

The 18-year-old was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving, failing to stop and possession of cannabis.

He was also detained on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary – relating to a series of car key burglaries across Nottinghamshire in September 2020.

The 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and possession of cannabis. He was also detained on suspicion of burglary – relating to two car key burglaries in Nottinghamshire earlier this month.

The aggravated burglary relates to an incident reported to have happened in Spencer Street, Mansfield, on Thursday, January 21.

Two suspects armed with machetes smashed a door down to get into the property, believed to be looking for someone before they left empty-handed.

No-one was injured during the incident.

Detective Inspector Nick Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to some excellent police teamwork we were able to bring this incident to a safe conclusion and we are now questioning two suspects as part of our ongoing enquiries.”

Both suspects remain in custody.
