Southport Man Arrested In Connection With Bamber Bridge Assault & Death Threats

A man wanted as part of Operation Hunter has been arrested and charged.

Simon Long, 41, from Southport was wanted in connection with a report of an assault in Bamber Bridge in September.

He was located and arrested last week on suspicion of assault, making threats to kill and criminal damage.

Following consultation with the CPS, Long was subsequently charged with criminal damage and remanded in custody.

A Lancs Police spokesman said:

“Thank you to everyone who shared our earlier appeals for information.

“That’s six down, three to go of the latest Operation Hunter most wanted individuals.

“Launched in July, Operation Hunter sees taskforce officers from across the Force as well as specialist units including Tactical Operations and the ANPR intercept teams target individuals wanted for a range of offences including domestic abuse, sexual offences and general criminality.

“We arrest a significant number of people who are wanted as part of our daily business. However, a small number of people will do all that they can to evade capture by the Police and go to ground.”
