Wanted man wearing only his boxer shorts found hiding behind wall in police raid

This is the bizarre and unexpected moment a man wearing only his boxer shorts was found hiding inside a house wall.

The body camera footage shows police in the North West investigating what appears to be the kitchen of a home this morning (January 19).

Officers from Wigan’s District Tasking Team can then be seen using a knife to open a small cubby hole door on a wall before a man’s head suddenly appears.

He then climbs out of the small hole and can be seen wearing nothing but a pair of boxer shorts.

He crawls past bottles of cleaning spray and bleach, and into the waiting arms of police who haul him down from the counter and arrest him.

The 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of two domestic violence offences, a driving offence and on recall to prison.

He remains in custody for questioning.

GMP shared the footage and say the incident happened at an address in the Southdene area of Kirkby, reports the MEN.

A spokesperson said: “Some people go to extreme lengths to evade police but this wanted man was today found hiding in a wall at an address in #Merseyside by our #Wigan District Tasking Team.

“It’s fair to say we’ll quite literally go through walls to catch those that we’re after!”
