Man arrested following Bramley burglary and car crash


A man has been arrested by detectives investigating a burglary in Bramley which led to a fatal collision involving a stolen car.

The 25-year-old man was arrested this morning in connection with the incident that occurred at an address in Ganners Road, Bramley, in the early hours of yesterday, during which a 28-year-old man was stabbed.

A silver Vauxhall Zafira that was stolen in the incident by two suspects was in collision with a wall in Leeds and Bradford Road a short time later. A man from the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers were concerned for the welfare of a second man believed to have been in the vehicle, but police say that has been resolved as a result of the arrest.

The vehicle had made off from a police unit immediately prior to the collision and the Independent Office for Police Conduct is carrying out an independent investigation.
