Two Cleveland Police officers have been injured after they stopped a black Saab car that was circulated as wanted in connection with a theft.

The incident happened on Albert Road in Middlesbrough at 4.45am Saturday August 2nd.

One of the officers was speaking to the driver and attempted to take the car keys. The car then made off, dragging the officer for a short distance along the road.

The other officer was also in collision with the car as it made off.

Both officers were taken to hospital – one officer was treated for head and neck injuries and the other was treated for minor injuries. Both have been discharged.

The car was found abandoned a short distance away on Marton Road.

A 32 year old local man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and a 24 year old local man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and obstructing police.

Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.
