Man arrested after climbing and jumping on ‘brand new’ police car

A man was arrested after damaging a police car in an act of vandalism. The 30-year-old man was arrested on Friday evening (April 29) after climbing on and jumping on the ‘brand new’ police vehicle in the city centre.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed the man remained in police custody this morning. The police car is now also undergoing necessary repair work.

In a statement, a police spokesperson said: “Last night, one of our brand new police cars was damaged. A 30yr old male thought it would be funny to climb on & jump up and down on the car.

“The sad reality is, that’s one less vehicle we have to respond whilst it’s being repaired. He was arrested & remains in police custody.”

In another motor-related incident this week, police arrested three people after a stolen car was driven the wrong way down the M60. The trio were first spotted in a Volkswagen vehicle which was suspected to have stolen after a recent burglary.
