West News Wire: Following reports that King Charles III was attacked with an egg while visiting a town center, a man was detained on assault suspicion on Tuesday, according to the police.

A man in his 20s was reportedly being questioned by Bedfordshire Police regarding an alleged common assault.

The projectile appeared to have been launched when Charles was interacting with members of the public in front of the town hall in Luton, which is located 30 miles (46 kilometers) north of London. His security guards escorted him to a another location where he resumed shaking hands with members of the public.

Since taking the throne following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in September, the king has made extensive travels throughout Great Britain. He was due to visit several sites in Luton on Tuesday, including a transit station and a Sikh house of worship, a gurdwara.

Last month a 23-year-old man was arrested after eggs were hurled at Charles and his wife Camilla, the queen consort, during a visit to York, northern England. The man was later released on bail.
