Police allegedly marched through the front door of a home and out the back door to arrest a man in a back garden.
Neighbours reported six policemen entered a house in Oldfield Lane South, Greenford , walking through an open front and back door with no explanation or excusing themselves afterwards.
The officers arrested a 20-year-old man in the back garden of a property in the road on Wednesday last week (July 9).
A Met Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called to reports of a man acting suspiciously in bushes in a children’s play area in Ravenor Park , Oldfield Lane South on Wednesday, July 9 at about 1.20pm.
“On arrival, officers spoke to a group of men. A 20-year old was found in breach of his bail conditions.
“He ran from officers down an alley way into back gardens. He was chased by officers and detained in a nearby garden and arrested for breach of bail.
“In order to assist with the arrest, officers gained entry through a property in Oldfield Lane South.
“No official complaint has been received in regard to the officers entering the property to pursue an offender, however, after being contacted by the Gazette, they will be making contact with the residents regarding any issues they may have.”
