Officer Injured in Police Vehicle after Alleged Attack in Hartlepool

Officers are appealing for witnesses after a police officer was injured during an alleged incident in Hartlepool earlier this week.

On Monday 30th September a police officer was parked in a marked police vehicle on Challoner Road in Hartlepool due to an earlier incident whereby a 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of harassment and threats to cause damage/ destroy property. He has been released under investigation.

The officer remained parked on the street to provide reassurance to local residents following the earlier incident.

At around midnight, it was reported that a silver 4×4 Mitsubishi vehicle allegedly rammed into the police car, causing the officer inside to sustain head and neck injuries.

The officer was taken to hospital to be checked over and he was later released with minor injuries, following treatment.

The Mitsubishi vehicle was later found in the Durham area and was recovered.

A 30-year-old man has been charged with criminal damage – recklessly endangering life, assault, driving dangerously and driving without insurance. He pleaded not guilty at Teesside Magistrates Court today (Thursday 3rd October).

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anything leading up to the incident to contact Cleveland Police on 101, quoting incident number 168899.

Independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
