Appeal following aggressive car chase in Clifton

Posted on in Local appeals

North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about a violent incident that occurred in York.

It happened at around 7.50pm on Monday 10 February after a car was aggressively being followed by another car from Clifton to Bootham in York City Centre on Bootham. Both vehicles are believed to have mounted the pavement narrowly missing pedestrians.

The cars then came to a halt on St Leonard’s Place where an occupant from the rear vehicle approached the occupants of the first vehicle and began violently banging on the windows.

We are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

In particular, we are appealing for information about any persons who may have witnessed erratic driving on Bootham travelling into York or the vehicles coming to a halt on St Leonard’s Place in York.

Officers would also like to hear from the two pedestrians who were narrowly missed by the two vehicles.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Ashley Hardwick. You can also email Ashley.hardwick@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Please quote the North Yorkshire Police reference number 12200024031
