Police are appealing for information after a pregnant woman was robbed in Ormesby.
The heavily pregnant woman was robbed as she was out walking in woods adjacent to Ladgate Lane and the High Street in Ormesby on Saturday.
The woman, who is in her 40s, was opposite the junction with Pritchett Road, Ormesby, at around 2pm when she was approached by a man who snatched her black Ted Baker handbag containing a blue Ted Baker purse which had cash inside it.
The lady fell to the ground during the incident and suffered lower back pain.
She attended James Cook University Hospital so that she and her unborn child could be checked over. She was released after being seen.
The suspect is described as 6’ tall, very slim, wearing a black hooded top and baggy jogging bottoms. He ran off after the robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Gareth Davies at Cleveland Police via the 101 number. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers via its website at www.crimestoppers-uk.org or by phoning 0800 555 111.
Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action after a man slipped in woods near to Guisborough.
The team were called just after 8am on Saturday morning to go to the help of the 73 year old Guisborough man who had slipped on a snowy forestry track, injuring his leg, whist on his regular morning dog walk.
Members of the volunteer mountain rescue team, along with an ambulance service paramedic, managed to reach the injured man in one of the Team’s Landrover ambulances by driving for around a kilometre across snow covered forestry tracks from Hutton Village, just outside Guisborough.
The man’s injuries were treated at the scene before he was transported back to Hutton Village on a stretcher in the back of the ambulance service’s all-terrain vehicle.
He was handed over to a waiting ambulance and taken to James Cook University Hospital for treatment.
Police have thanked a member of the public who alerted them to two motorbikes hidden in bushes in Kirkleatham.
The man spotted the motorbikes hidden in the bushes and alerted officers from Cleveland Police, who attended the scene and recovered the bikes.
Investigations are now on-going to locate the bikes owners.
The community has suffered many instances of nuisance bike riding recently and police have received numerous calls about the issue.
Anyone who has information on nuisance bike riding or the location of any bikes involved is asked to contact Cleveland Police via 101.
