Police arrested several irregular immigrants after breaking into residences and jumping from rooftops of multiple residences in Hamrun.

The police as well as the Rapid Intervention Unit got a report that an irregular immigrant broke into a residence in Kappillan Mifsud Street.

Police then had to surround the building block from nearby streets and break into multiple residences in order to find the immigrants as multiple people reported immigrants breaking into their homes to hide.

3 immigrants were arrested inside a block of apartments and another was arrested inside a nearby house. Another was hospitalised after jumping from a building into a garden while trying to escape.

Police are still investigating the case.
