2 MEN CHARGED FOLLOWING VENTNOR ROOF STAND-OFF AND EARLIER BURGLARY

Police have charged 2 men following an incident in Ventnor which saw them refuse to climb down from a roof on Thursday (29th July).

As first reported by Island Echo, multiple police units wearing riot gear attended Lowtherville Road in Upper Ventnor shortly before 16:30 after reports were received of 2 men throwing objects including concrete blocks at officers already on the scene – with the men refusing to come down from the roof and demanding tobacco and water.

At least 9 police vehicles were present on the residential street for several hours after the duo reportedly used scaffolding to gain access to the rooftop and claimed that they were ‘protesting.
