A man has had his bike stolen whilst cycling in Locke Park in Redcar.
It happened last Friday evening at around eight o'clock when the victim was approached by another man on a bike.
The man hit him in the face, causing his glasses to break and cut his eye lid.
The victim then cycled away through the park and was followed by the man and three others who pulled him off his white mountain bike and made off with it towards the Lakes Estate.
The suspect is thought to be aged between 16 and 20 and was described as wearing a grey and black coat with the hood up.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Richard Sweeney on the non-emergency number 101.
Three teenagers have been arrested in connection with fires in Skelton and Saltburn.
The first fire happened at Skelton Castle at around ten to eight on the morning of Friday the 21st of April.
The second took place at a property on The Fairways in Saltburn around half an hour later where a garage was set on fire.
Three males aged 13, 17 and 19 were arrested on suspicion of causing the fires.
All three have since been released from custody with no bail while enquiries continue.
The decommissioned oil rig 'Brent Delta' was finally carried into the River Tees yesterday afternoon.
The 24,000 tonne rig was transported from it's location in the North Sea by the 'Pioneering Spirit', the largest floating vessel in the world.
Overnight on Monday it was transferred to the barge 'Iron Lady' at a location 5 miles off the coast of Teesside.
Shortly after 4pm yesterday, tugs hauled the giant barge and its massive cargo into the mouth of the River Tees, heading towards Able Seaton Port at Hartlepool where the rig will be dismantled and scrapped over the next twelve months.
Hundreds of sightseers gathered on both sides of the River Tees to witness the huge structure make its final journey.
