Police are investigating after personal protective equipment was stolen from an ambulance in Middlesbrough on Monday.
The theft occurred as the ambulance crew attended emergency calls in Middlesbrough’s Newport area.
The items reported stolen were provided to the ambulance crew to keep them safe as they provide life-saving treatment to patients during the coronavirus pandemic.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact them on the non-emergency number 101.
Police are appealing for information after a 14-year-old boy was robbed by a group of youths.
The boy was approached by five males, all believed to be aged 16-20 years old, on the bridle way near Flatts Lane Woodland Centre towards Ormesby at around 5:40pm on Monday.
One of the males produced a knife with a black handle and demanded that the victim hand over his Iphone 7, and he was then pushed off his bike before the group made off with the phone and bike. The stolen bike is described as a black and green Carrera mountain bike.
One of the suspects is described as 16-20 years old, around 5ft 10” to 6 ft tall, of medium build with a shaven head and a long, ginger or brown beard. He was wearing a grey hooded top with a red jigsaw pieces pattern and grey woollen gloves.
Two others in the group were riding bikes, one was orange and blue and the other was white.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Dan Cook from Redcar and Cleveland CID on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
