Police are appealing for information after a dog was shot and killed in Eston.
12-year-old Millie, a Jack Russell, was hit by an air weapon at around 6am on Sunday in the car park of Ryfields House, which is just off Holmfields Road in Bankfields.
Officers immediately took the dog to a local vet, however, unfortunately she died.
Prior to the weapon being fired, there were two people at the location riding a motorcycle. Both of them were wearing balaclavas.
They made off towards Holmfields Road after the shot was fired.
Any witnesses or anyone with information regarding those riding the motorcycle or those responsible is asked to contact PC Carl Cooper from Kirkleatham Police Office on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Officers investigating the death of Guisborough teenager Sonny Stephenson have appealed for the publics help to identify a number of potential witnesses.
Cleveland and North Yorkshire Major Investigation Team would like to identify a man who was seen walking on Ash Road and Park Lane (close to Park House Care Home) in Guisborough between ten past nine and twenty five to ten in the evening on Sunday 27th August, which was the day before the August Bank Holiday.
The man was wearing blue jeans, a beige or light grey long sleeved jacket, a black baseball cap and he was carrying a black rucksack.
Officers in the case would also like to trace a man and woman who were walking along the alleyway between Uppergarth Gardens and Bolckow Street in Guisborough at around 9.15pm that same day, Sunday 27th August.
Although there is unfortunately no CCTV of this couple, they are known to have been in general conversation about having suffered vehicle crime, and they appear to briefly mention a quad bike.
These members of the public could be key witnesses to the events which led to the death of Sonny, and police are keen to trace them and speak to them.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police via the 101 number.
Victims of crime in our area are being reminded about Restorative Justice.
Restorative Justice Week began on Monday, and Police and Crime Commissioner, Barry Coppinger and Cleveland Police are highlighting how restorative justice can help victims cope and recover following a crime.
Restorative justice is the communication between someone who has been a victim of crime or antisocial behaviour and the person who has harmed them. This interaction can be in the form of a meeting between both parties, via a letter or by messages and questions passed through a trained Restorative Justice Facilitator.
