Police Incident: Ride Out at Tulip Street Retail Park
The West Yorkshire Police has given me an update on last nights Ride Out and associated antisocial behaviour.
At 18:51 on Saturday 13 June, a number of reports were received from members of the public regarding large numbers of motor vehicles gathering at locations across Leeds.
300 vehicles gathered at Moor Allerton Centre, Sainsbury Carpark, Blackmore Road and later 350 vehicles gathered on Lowfields Road, Leeds.
Police used body worn cameras and registrations were noted by officers to ensure relevant intelligence can be submitted and positive action taken where appropriate.
At around 21:30, 800 vehicles started to arrive at Tulip Retail Park (South Leeds). Neighbourhood Police, Patrol and Roads Policing Team were deployed to gather intelligence, ensure the safe use of the roads for those involved and other members of the public, and encouraged the dispersal of the event.
A significant volume of calls were received regarding this and this has received local media coverage. All vehicles were dispersed by 23:30.
Stabbing Near to BFC on Dewsbury Road
The Police have informed me of an incident yesterday at 17:00 in the ginnel between Abu Bakr and BFC on Dewsbury Road, Beeston. At 16.56 hours Police received a call from the ambulance service to report a male had been stabbed in the neck and back.
Officers attended and located the injured party who had received serious injuries. The scene was secured and a suspect was quickly identified. They have been arrested and are in custody. It is believed this incident occurred over a dispute about a phone and therefore was a targeted attack.
The injured party is still in hospital however, their injuries are not believed to be as serious as first thought.
