As Manchester continues to recover from the horrific bombing that took place Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert, the city’s police are working overtime to find suspects tied to the attack carried out by Salman Abedi. After conducting two raids, the force has confirmed the arrest of “three men…in connection with the ongoing investigation into Monday night's horrific attack at the Manchester arena.” While police have yet to reveal the identity of the three suspects, eyewitnesses detailed the frightening raids that may have resulted in the men’s arrest.
Louise Bolotin told The Daily Mail that the fire alarm went off in her building in Granby Row, in the middle of the city. “I came running down the front staircase, six floors, and got to the front entrance and was met by a police officer in full-on tactical helmet, face mask, machine gun,” Louise explained. “I was expecting to see the fire brigade.”
“I saw…about four armed officers coming out from the back of the building,” Lousie continued. “Again, helmets, face masks, machine guns and getting into two unmarked cars and driving away. After that about half a dozen army came out in camouflage, weapons.”
Marcus Murray, a resident of the same building, told The Daily Mail, “I feel a bit uneasy. Going to sleep is going to be a bit difficult. It just feels unsafe.”
Meanwhile, residents of south Manchester witnessed their own shocking moment when police dragged a family out of their home at 2:30 in the morning. Neighbors told The Daily Mail that the Manchester bomber, Salman, had stayed at the address in the past.
As police continue their investigation, officers remain outside of Salman’s suspected house in Fallowfield. Said Marcus, “I felt safe before, but not now.”
