Police are appealing for witnesses after a 44-year-old man suffered serious injuries in an incident in Middlesbrough.
The incident happened around ten past four in the morning on Monday at the junction of Granville Road and Linthorpe Road when the victim is believed to have been followed, stabbed with a weapon and had his wallet stolen.
The man remains in James Cook University Hospital where he is in a serious but stable condition and has potentially life changing injuries.
A 24-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder and he appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
A 17-year-old male has also been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and he remains in police custody.
Police are urging members of the public to send in any images or footage of off-road bikes being ridden illegally.
As the weather improves over the coming months and reports of the use of illegal off-road bikes potentially increases, officers are encouraging members of the public to submit footage and images as part of their intelligence gathering process, so that police can look to seize the vehicles and take appropriate action.
Anyone with information regarding off-road bikes, where they are being stored or anyone using them illegally can call Cleveland Police on 101 or go to Crimestoppers online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
The Annual Redcar and Cleveland Inspiring Women Awards have taken place.
The awards have been running annually since 2015, and were first set up in memory of former Redcar MP Mo Mowlam.
Yesterday's event took place in the Bellamy Pavilion at Kirkleatham Museum, and recognised the achievements of many inspiring women from our area.
Zetland FM was proud to sponsor the ‘Julie Donaldson Volunteer Award’ which this year was presented to Anna Liddle for her inspirational work with Saltburn Skatepark.
Theresa Cave received the Mo Mowlem Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with local knife-crime charity 'The Chris Cave Foundation'.
