Detectives in Hartlepool are appealing for information or footage as they investigate a robbery which happened earlier today (between 10.20 and 10.30am on Tuesday 16th January).
A 21-year-old man was left shaken after a male on a red quad bike rode alongside him on Walpole Road then jumped off and restrained him in a headlock in order to remove the victim’s jacket. The rider then left in the direction of Masefield Road, with the victim’s money, phone and house keys.
We would appeal for anyone who has not yet spoken to police to come forward, as well as anyone who has dashcam, doorbell or private CCTV which could assist ongoing enquiries.
Please contact Cleveland Police on the 101 number quoting ref 8928.
