CHRISTIANA, Manchester:

The mentally challenged man who broke into the Christiana branches of the Manchester Co-operative Credit Union, National Commercial Bank, and Scotiabank over the Easter holiday has been taken in for questioning by police.

Positively identified by way of surveillance camera, the police have confirmed that the accused, on the morning of Easter Monday, April 22, smashed the glass windows near the entrance doors of the financial institutions but did not enter them all.

The police say he might be charged with malicious destruction of property and breaking and entering. However, he will not be treated as a criminal suspect.

“Nothing was taken from the institutions … . Vaults are not easily accessible, and from our interviews, we have already theorised that he does not have all his faculties in place,” said the police.
