Police pursued and arrested two suspects who were spotted climbing over garden fences after a break-in at a factory.
Officers were called to Sneinton Dale, Sneinton, at around 2.30am today (27 June) following reports two men were breaking into the industrial premises.
After a search of the area, officers spotted two suspects in back gardens at nearby Durham Avenue and chased them on foot.
One was detained in Durham Avenue six minutes after the initial call and was also found to have a knife in his pocket.
The other was found on a nearby rooftop a short time later.
A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of a bladed article.
Another male suspect was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
Both remain in police custody.
Sergeant Richard Hunter, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We responded quickly to this incident as we always do when receiving reports of break-ins taking place.
“Officers have then carried out a thorough search of the area and pursued these suspects with great determination.
“Their hard work has paid off as these two suspects are now in custody and being questioned over very serious offences.
“The force treats every report of burglary, on businesses or homes, with the utmost seriousness and officers will work hard to ensure those responsible are brought to justice.”
