Officer Assaulted by Motorbike Rider in Stockton

Police are appealing for information after a Cleveland Police Officer was assaulted by a man on a motorbike in Stockton.

The incident occurred on Wednesday 20th March at 6:40pm when the officer spotted the rider travelling dangerously along Yarm Road. The officer followed the motorbike in a police car along Spring Street and onto Springholme Terrace and exited the vehicle.

Once the PC had exited the vehicle, the rider rode the motorbike directly at the officer which caused the officer to fall to the floor.

As a result of the assault, the officer suffered bruising and swelling.

Chief Superintendent Alison Jackson said: “Assaulting an officer is completely unacceptable and this behaviour will not be tolerated.

“Our officers work tirelessly to protect our communities, to keep members of the public safe and to prevent people from being harmed. Every effort will be made to bring the person responsible to justice.

 “We are appealing for anyone who was around at the time of the incident who believes they know the identity of the motorbike rider to come forward with information as they may be able to assist with enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC David Leen from Cleveland Police on 101 quoting 046929. Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
