The turn of events at The Oval during the fourth day of the County Championship game between Surrey and Middlesex is still a hot topic of debate in cricket.
On Thursday evening, the match was abandoned after a crossbow bolt was fired into the ground and landed extremely close to the playing area.
The Met Police was informed immediately while the players and umpires exited the field as security staff darted on to the pitch to provide cover.
With almost 1,000 spectators in the stands, the police took no chances and told the crowd to evacuate the stadium as investigations carried on in and around the iconic venue.
Two days on, the latest theory the police are investigating is that the crossbow bolt could have been fired from a nearby roof terrace, according to The Sun.
It was confirmed by officials that detectives are actively searching for more evidence regarding what could have happened and have explored the areas above flats in the local area.
One resident spoke to The Sun and told: “A member of the public could have conned their way in. Fifty flats have access to that terrace.”
The police are appealing for any witnesses who might have captured the entire event on video, and think this could be key to finding the perpetrator.
A spokesman further stated: “This was a reckless action.”
The following days will be crucial in determining what actually unfolded at the time in South London as officers look to make developments in the case in the days ahead.
