Police are appealing for witnesses and information after an incident involving a motorbike in Hemlington, Middlesbrough, left a man with a broken leg.
The incident happened around 3:30pm on Friday 29th September on the footpath around Hemlington Lake.
A motorbike with three people onboard was being ridden on the public footpath when a family were walking along with their children.
As a result of the father having to pull one of his children out of the way of the oncoming bike, the 39-year-old man suffered a broken leg and was taken to James Cook University Hospital for treatment, where he had surgery to his leg.
The bike did not make contact with the man. It was then ridden off and did not stop at the scene.
The bike rider and two passengers are described as being dressed in camouflage clothing and balaclavas.
Any witnesses or anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident who may have details of the bike or those riding it or a registration number, is asked to contact PC Larkin from Cleveland Police on 101, quoting reference number 216058.
