Two men have been charged in connection with an alleged stabbing incident in Redcar.
The two men, both aged 21, were arrested and charged with wounding with intent, and appeared at Magistrates Court yesterday.
The alleged incident happened in Charlotte Street in the early hours of Wednesday, and a 30-year-old man was taken to James Cook University Hospital with stab wounds, which are not believed to be life threatening.
Officers are appealing for information after criminal damage was caused to the monument at the top of Eston Hills.
It is believed that graffiti was sprayed onto the monument earlier this month, between Friday 14th and Saturday 15th May.
Anyone who may have witnessed the vandalism, or has any information which could assist enquiries, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Five new Police Community Support Officers have taken to the streets of Redcar and Cleveland.
The PCSO's will be deployed to police neighbourhood teams in the Skelton West, Hutton, St Germains, Dormanstown and Normanby areas.
PCSOs work with police officers and share some, but not all, of their powers. They contribute to tackling crime, gathering intelligence, assisting in strengthening communities and making a difference to people’s lives.
Cleveland Police has recently welcomed nine new PCSOs across the Cleveland force area, and another group are currently in training and will be commencing their duties later this summer.
