Appeal Following Dangerous Stone Throwing at Vehicles in Ormesby


Police are appealing for information after a number of vehicles were pelted with stones whilst driving along Normanby Road near to Allendale Road in Ormesby, Middlesbrough.

The incidents occurred between 7:30pm and 7:50pm on Sunday 4th March which resulted in two windscreens being smashed and cracked.


No one was injured.

Acting Inspector Mark Doherty said: “It is extremely dangerous to throw objects at moving vehicles. The result of a screen smashing whilst people are inside can be catastrophic and could potentially result in a serious injury or worse, death.


“The occupants of these vehicles are understandably shocked, angry and upset and some are now afraid to drive in this area and this is because of the thoughtless and irresponsible actions of these individual youths.


“Throwing stones at vehicles is a criminal offence and this behaviour will be not be tolerated. Anyone found to be carrying out such acts will face the full force of the law.”


It is believed a group of youths aged between 14-16-years-old are responsible and they were seen congregating near to St Gabriel’s Church wearing dark clothing.


Anyone with information regarding the youths or anyone who witnessed the incidents is asked to contact PC Heather Coates from Cleveland Police quoting 038692 on the non-emergency 101 number, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or
