LONDON, (Reuters) – British police arrested a 35-year old man yesterday over an incident at London’s Oval Cricket Ground which was evacuated on Thursday after a crossbow bolt was fired onto the pitch.

London’s Metropolitan police said the man had been arrested on suspicion of attempted grievous bodily harm and later bailed pending further enquiries.

“This was a reckless action taken with no regard for the safety and wellbeing of the spectators or the players,” said Detective Constable Dominic Landragin of Lambeth borough police.
