Two men have been arrested after officers were called to a disturbance at an address in Canvey Island.
We were called to reports of an aggravated burglary in Champlain Avenue, Canvey Island, shortly after 8.50pm last night, Wednesday 5 April.
It was reported that two men had entered an address before threatening and assaulting a man inside.
Thankfully, no serious injuries have been reported.
We are investigating a number of lines of enquiry in relation to the incident and we now believe it may be connected to a prior incident outside KFC, in High Street, Canvey, which took place between 8.20pm and 8.30pm.
During that incident, it was reported that a group of young people were fighting.
Acting Detective Sergeant Emma Taylor, of Canvey CID, said:
“This is a fast-paced investigation, and we are following number of lines of enquiry.
“Two arrests have been made thanks to the quick detective work of officers and our investigation into the earlier incident is progressing at pace.
“We must stress that at this stage, we believe this to be an isolated incident and there is no wider threat to the Canvey community.”
We need anyone with information on either incident to get in touch.
