Off-road bikers 'aggressively target officer' in Greasbrough
Police want to identify this man

POLICE want to identify two men who are said to have aggressively targeted a road safety officer in Greasbrough.

The men were riding off-road bikes in the Fenton Road area in Greasbrough, Rotherham, on Friday, December 6, a spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said.

The bikers (pictured above and below) aggressively targeted a road safety officer as he staffed a safety camera van, she added.



Inspector Jason Booth said: "These bikes are not safe to be ridden on our roads and the manner in which they’re ridden often intimidates members of the public and can put people in danger.



“I would like to identify the two riders pictured, and appeal to the public to share with us any information they have around off-road bikes.

"Your input is so useful; especially when people come forward with descriptions of the riders, their bikes and knowledge of where they are being kept and frequently ridden.”



Any information can be reported via 101, quoting incident number 333 of January 26. If you would like to share pictures, please email enquiries@southyorks.pnn.police.uk.

Alternatively, you can stay completely anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers via their website Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.
