Police are appealing for information after officers were called to an incident in which a 25-year-old man was left with head and leg injuries following the theft of a car in Grangetown.

The 25-year-old man attempted to prevent the theft of the vehicle, a red Vauxhall Corsa, by two men on Shakespeare Avenue at around twenty past one on Saturday morning. 

As the car made off, the man suffered head injuries and a suspected fractured ankle. He remains in James Cook University Hospital in a “stable” condition.

The vehicle was later found abandoned on Ainthorpe Road in Whale Hill and had been involved in a collision with a parked vehicle on Slater Road.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or those responsible is asked to contact DC Nicky Moore from Redcar and Cleveland Volume Crime Team on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org. 


Officers from Redcar Neighbourhood Policing team were in action in the town yesterday executing a drugs warrant at an address on Queen Street in Redcar.

In a post on their Facebook Page, officers from the Redcar NPT said they would like to thank everyone who has provided information. They went on to reassure the public that officers remain committed to dealing with those who sell and deal drugs.
