A police officer is seen reaching out at a roof-top through another Flat's window as a measure of safety to prevent the alleged suspected fugitive from possibly fleeing his flat. A man who is alleged to have assaulted members of the public and emergency worker in south London on Tuesday, Aug 18, 2020, didn't respond to multiple calls by the police to surrender.
Members of the MET police crew stormed into his barricaded doorstep after Martin wouldn’t respond to their multiple calls to surrender as he was declared that he was going to be arrested.
After breaking the door police stumbled into a barricade made of a ladder, washing machine, several chairs and other wood and plastic items. After forcing themselves into his apartment, police couldn't find him. The search is on-going. (VXP Photo/ Vudi Xhymshiti)
