Officers believe he could have witnessed an “alleged altercation” between three youths in Low Grange Avenue, Billingham, nearly three weeks ago.

A Cleveland Police spokesman said on Friday morning: “The man police want to speak to was driving in the Billingham area in the very early hours of the morning of Sunday, June 23, and pulled over onto Low Grange Avenue, close to the bus stop, opposite the shops.

“It is thought he may have witnessed an alleged altercation between three youths anytime between 1am and 2.15am.
