Police appeal for witnesses after patrol car is rammed in Bromsgrove
8:20am Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
TWO men fled from a vehicle in Bromsgrove after it was used to ram a police patrol car attempting to stop it.
The incident happened in Stratford Road, at the top of the hill near the junction with Stratford Gardens, at about 9.20pm on Monday, (March 11).
Police tried to halt a blue Renault Clio but the vehicle rammed the patrol car, causing one officer to suffer whiplash.
The police vehicle suffered significant damage in the collision.
A short time later police found the Clio abandoned in a car park at the back of the Golden Cross Hotel, in High Street, after being alerted by a member of the public.
Two men had fled from the car, and they had a Staffie-type dog with them.
Both of the men were white, in their late teens or early 20s. One is of medium build, had short fair or blond hair, and was wearing a light coloured top.
The other man had short, dark hair and was wearing a dark top.
Officers investigating the incident want to hear from anyone who saw the men running back into the High Street after abandoning the car, or if they think they know who they are.
Police are also appealing for anyone who saw the vehicle and its occupants either during the incident or in the area before the collision, to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sergeant Bjorn Havinga on non-emergency number 101, quoting incident reference 535-S-110313.
Alternatively pass details on anonymously through Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 111.
