A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of Mark Robinson in Redcar.
40-year-old Mr Robinson was the victim of a serious assault at a property on Station Road in July 2020.
He suffered a head injury and following lengthy hospital treatment and full-time care Mark died on August 5th last year.
Now, almost two years after the attack, 35-year-old Raymond Whincup has been charged with murder.
He appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday afternoon.
Police have charged a man after alleged thefts and robberies in Grangetown.
Officers from Redcar CID have charged a 38-year-old man with several reported offences including alleged thefts from shops, a knifepoint robbery at a bookmaker's, theft of a charity box, and an assault on store staff in the wider Grangetown area.
He appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday.
Police have issued an appeal to trace a motorist who assisted an alleged victim in our area at the weekend.
Detectives are investigating an alleged incident from the early hours of Saturday in which a woman reported she was assaulted and had her black Mini Cooper stolen, before being left in the road.
The female driver of a white hatchback stopped to help the woman on the A174 near the Lazenby and Wilton bypass road between the Kirkleatham Lane roundabout and Greystones roundabout.
She then took the alleged victim, who's in her 40s, to the Shell garage on Eston High Street, from where she phoned the police at 4.36am.
A 36-year-old man was arrested and subsequently charged with assault, false imprisonment, robbery and driving with no insurance.
He has been remanded while enquiries continue.
Police are appealing for the female driver of the white car to get in touch with them on the non-emergency number 101, as she may have information which can help their on-going enquiries.
