The ground was evacuated after the bolt landed on the field
A man has been arrested in the UK after a crossbow bolt was fired into the Oval cricket ground in London earlier this week.
The incident happened on Thursday afternoon, during the final day of a Surrey v Middlesex match.
The ground was evacuated after the bolt landed on the field, and the match was suspended.
Nobody was injured in the incident.
Met Police now say a 35-year-old man was arrested this morning on suspicion of attempted grievous bodily harm.
Detective Constable Dominic Landragin explained: "There were significant crowds watching the match and it is likely that a number of those present will have footage of the incident that could assist in our investigation.
"Although nobody was injured, this was a reckless action taken with no regard for the safety and wellbeing of the spectators or the players."
The man has been released on bail.
