Tom Newham reports for the University of Warwick’s The Boar on the arrest of a 16 year-old boy on suspicion of illegally entering the University’s medical centre:
An animal rights activist was arrested at the University of Warwick on suspicion of illegally entering the University’s medical centre.
The male suspect, aged 16, disguised himself in a stolen lab coat and spent several hours examining animal research facilities at the Gibbet Hill site before being asked for identification by a technician, who then chased and restrained the intruder before handing him over to University Security Staff.
When police arrived on the scene the boy was arrested on suspicion of burglary, questioned and released on bail – on the condition that he stays away from the University campus and does not contact any animal research organisations.
