Arrest after ‘gun’ attack

A 21-YEAR-OLD has been arrested in connection with an ‘armed’ attack on a Cotmanhay dad in his own home.

Adrian Draper answered the door of his Lathkill Avenue home to two hooded men at 11.30am on Saturday July 2, one of whom rammed what appeared to be a gun into his gut.

By chance the 43-year-old captured the whole incident on a security camera he was setting up in his living room at the time.

The man from Ilkeston was arrested last Thursday and released on bail after being questioned by police.

Mr Draper sustained head injuries but did not receive hospital treatment after the attack and nothing was stolen.

Police are continuing their enquiries and have asked anyone with information to call 0345 123 33 33.
