Police have arrested a man after a burglary in Marske at the weekend.

 

Police are appealing for information after a 13-year-old girl was robbed in Teesville.

The girl was walking through the alley between Kinloch Road and Glenmor Grove at around 8.15am on Tuesday, when she was approached by a man who grabbed her handbag and pulled her hair until she released her grip on it.

She then ran off.

The man made off with the handbag, which was later found discarded, however, two Louis Vuitton purses were stolen from it along with a pair of Louis Vuitton earrings and a pair of purple rectangular framed glasses.

The suspect is described as an Asian male, aged in his late twenties, around 5ft 8” tall, of slim build and wearing dark clothing with a scarf around his neck.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or anyone who may have been offered the stolen items for sale is asked to contact Police Staff Investigator Richard Lovick from Redcar and Cleveland Operational Crime Team on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

It was a day of traffic gridlock after a coach crash led to the closure of a major route for almost 10 hours yesterday.

The coach hit a crash barrier at around ten to eight yesterday morning on the A66 eastbound at the Cineworld turn-off with the A172 Marton Road in Middlesbrough.

The driver, who was on her way to collect schoolchildren and was the only person on board the coach, was taken to James Cook University Hospital suffering from multiple limb injuries.

The eastbound route of the A66 was closed shortly after and remained shut until 6pm, when a single lane was re-opened.

However the key commuter route is not expected to be fully reopened for several days due the need for extensive repairs.

Even after the single lane was opened, there continued to be long tailbacks on yesterday evening, and further delays are expected this morning.

 

Police have arrested a man after a burglary in Marske at the weekend.

On Saturday neighbourhood policing officers responded to reports from members of the public that a man was walking down the street carrying a television in Marske.

The man got onto a bus outside Sainsbury’s and was joined by officers as he was wanted for several shop thefts.

He was then involved in a struggle with the two female officers before being detained and taken to custody.

The man has now been dealt with for the thefts and remanded in custody.

Further enquiries regarding the television identified it as having been stolen from a vulnerable woman's address in Marske as a result of a burglary.

Officers dealt with the man for this offence the next day and he is now awaiting trial.
