No action to be taken against householder over intruder fall

Police said: "The 56-year-old man from Chorlton, who was arrested on suspicion of section 18 assault, has had his bail cancelled and no further action will be taken against him."

A householder arrested after a suspected burglar died falling from the top floor window of his flat will have no further action taken against him, police confirmed today.

Patrick Walsh, 56, awoke in the early hours of last Monday to find an intruder in his flat on Corkland Road in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, south Manchester.

Police said "following an exchange of words", the 43-year-old suspect fell from the fourth floor window on to the pavement below.

He suffered massive injuries from the fall and died in hospital on Thursday.

Mr Walsh was arrested and questioned by detectives while forensic officers conducted a detailed examination of his flat.

He was bailed until November, but police have now concluded no further action against him is necessary.

A post-mortem examination revealed the dead man died from injuries conducive with a fall and they are not treating the death as suspicious. The case has been passed to the coroner.

A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: "The 56-year-old man from Chorlton, who was arrested on suspicion of section 18 assault, has had his bail cancelled and no further action will be taken against him."

Victor Wozny, Mr Walsh\'s solicitor, said today his client did not want to comment on the matter.

An ‘intruder’ dies and the homeowner gets arrested? UK citizens (is it that serfs) need to revolt against this dangerous pc crap!

He WAS charged, the charges were dropped.

Not too long ago a man removed some steps from his stairs to keep the frequent burglars from coming up. A burglar was injured and I believe the homeowner went to prison. Only in not so great Britain. However there are those who would have that here since we have people who “have to steal” to get by.

When fourth floor flats are outlawed, only outlaws will have fourth floor flats.

Reminds me of the scene from one of my favorite movies, ‘Liar, Liar’:

FLETCHER REEDE: Greta ! Don’t leave!

GRETA: Mr. Reede...several years ago, a friend had a burglar on her roof. He fell through the skylight, landed on a butcher’s knife, cutting his leg. The burglar sued my friend. He sued my friend! Because of guys like you, he won! My friend had to pay the burglar $5,000. ls that justice?

FLETCHER REEDE: No...l’d have got him ten!

GRETA: Goodbye, Mr. Reede.

FLETCHER REEDE: No...wait! I didn’t understand! Ask me again!

Best to repeal the laws of gravity first.

As it came close to doing in the case of Tony Martin a few years ago. Since then, the UK crime problem has gotten noticeably worse.

Gravity...

It’s not just a good idea - it’s the law!

He wasn’t charged. As the article says, he was arrested and bailed while the incident was investigated. After investigation no further action was taken.

Probably only if the Homeowner was Muslim. I doubt the sheeple
have the fortitude to fight back at this point in the PC war being
waged already against them.

Just an observation.
