CCTV appeal following damage to life saving defibrillator box in Northallerton

Posted on in CCTV appeals

Police have issued CCTV of a man they would like to speak to following damage caused to a community access defibrillator situated at Romanby Primary School on The Close, Romanby near Northallerton

The incident happened at Romanby Primary School on The Close, Northallerton at 1am on Sunday 24 March and involved officers would like to speak with the man pictured as they believe he holds vital information as to how the defibrillator box became damaged.

Investigating officer, PC 1255 Jack Dodsworth of Northallerton Police Station said

“This incident had the potential to put a life saving defibrillator out of the community. Fortunately, this was not the case and the defibrillator was actually deployed by Yorkshire Ambulance Service on Wednesday 27th March but fortunately was not used. This was the first time in the year it has been there that it has been used by the public. If the situation was more serious and the defibrillator was needed whilst deployed but was unavailable due to mindless damage caused to the storage box, things could have been very different. I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the images to contact Police or Crimestoppers.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for PC Jack Dodsworth or email Jack.Dodsworth1255@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
