Two Hartlepool men contact police after appeal over two incidents before play-off final
Two men are helping police with their inquiries after an appeal was issued over incidents before Hartlepool United’s play-off final in Bristol last weekend.
Avon and Somerset Police released pictures of two men they wanted to speak to over an alleged assault on an emergency worker and a separate public order incident on Sunday, June 20.
It is believed the incidents happened at around 12.20pm in the Ashton Road area of the city before Hartlepool’s match against Torquay United.
A flare is said to have been thrown striking a mounted officer and police horse was physically struck in a separate incident.
On Friday, June 25, police said two men have come forward, stating: “A 19-year-old and 42-year-old man, both from Hartlepool, are assisting our ongoing enquiries with respect to separate investigations into an assault on an emergency worker and a public order incident.
“We're grateful to everyone who has shared our appeal and provided us with information.”
