Witness appeal after vehicle fails to stop for police
OFFICERS in Greys Mallory are appealing to the Earlswood community for information after a Peugeot 307 failed to stop for police.
The incident occurred near to a park off Malthouse Lane at approximately 5pm on Thursday 23 June.
A Peugeot 307 failed to stop for officers on foot patrol. The vehicle then collided with a hedgerow.
After the vehicle came to rest, two occupants of the vehicle left the scene on foot.
Following a search of the local area, one of the suspected occupants was located in Small Lane. Officers are working to locate the other person who left the scene.
It is believed that the incident and the behaviour of the vehicle was witnessed by a number of both pedestrians and motorists. Police would appeal to those who have not yet spoken to officers to please come forward.
Police are especially keen to speak to a pedestrian who spoke to officers to tell them where the vehicle had driven to.
A 19-year-old man from Birmingham has been arrested on suspicion of using a vehicle on a road or public place without third party insurance, driving a vehicle without a license, aggravated vehicle taking, vehicle damage and driving a vehicle failing to stop after a road accident.
He is on bail until Saturday 23rd July.
If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident number 290 of Thursday 23rd June and ask to speak to PC 1104 Roberts.
