The incidents happened at Fiddy’s Butchers on Aylsham Road, Norwich on October 7 and Hazels Butchers on Corbet Avenue, Sprowston on October 9.

During the first attack at Fiddy’s a window was smashed and graffiti sprayed on the building while in the second incident graffiti was sprayed on the building and on two vans parked outside the premises.

They also attempted to smash a window on the shop front and van.

A 30-year-old woman has since been arrested in Norwich on suspicion of criminal damage.

She was questioned and released on bail until earlier this month.

A police spokesman said the woman has been rebailed to January 15 next year at Aylsham Police Investigation Centre (PIC).
