Cleveland Police have issued a statement after a man was found walking amongst busy traffic on Thursday night.
Police received reports just before 5pm on Thursday that a man was standing in the middle of traffic on Trunk Road in the Eston area, near to the B&M store.
Concerned passersby took to Facebook to warn others of what was going on, as the man was in danger due to being in the middle of rush hour traffic.
The incident reportedly caused traffic tailbacks.
The man was spoken to by officers from Cleveland Police and transported home safely.
Warrants have been issued, drugs seized and arrests made as police continue their crackdown in Hemlington.
In the past week, arrests have been made and warrants have been issued to individuals in Hemlington who have been found engaging in anti-social behaviour on the estate.
Cleveland Police's Operation Fortress sees local neighbourhood officers and specialist teams have been working together with partner agencies to tackle ongoing anti-social behaviour and criminal activity.
Under the umbrella of the operation, police are carrying out regular weeks of action to address the problems that residents report.
The operation was launched amid reports of anti-social behaviour and criminal activity in Hemlington in recent months, leading to arrests in some instances as well as numerous dispersal orders on the area.
Police are appealing to trace two women who helped a man at the scene of an alleged assault in Middlesbrough.
The alleged incident happened on Linthorpe Road, close to House of Fraser, around 11:45pm on Monday.
A 31-year-old man suffered serious injuries and was taken to James Cook University Hospital, where he remains in a 'stable but poorly' condition.
Two men, aged 30 and 32, were arrested on suspicion of section 18 assault and later charged. Both appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court on Wednesday and were remanded in custody.
Detectives believe that there were two women, possibly aged in their twenties, who assisted the victim at the scene and they want to speak to these women as they may be able to assist with their enquiries.
These two women, or anyone who may know their identities, are asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
