Scarborough Police are appealing for dashcam and doorbell camera footage following two incidents in the town on Saturday.

Officers were called at 11.35pm on Saturday 8 June 2024 to reports that a man had been assaulted on Wreyfield Drive. He was taken to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

They say:

"Following investigation, it appears that a firearm of some description was discharged in the area at the time.

We are appealing for any information that could assist our investigation into the incident."

The police say they are also investigating a second incident that occurred earlier in the evening where it was reported that an argument and disturbance took place at around 10pm near to the row of shops on Colescliffe Road.

Officers say:

"We’d like to hear from anyone who has any dashcam or doorbell camera footage that may have captured something, in particular any of the people involved in the two incidents, or any vehicles in the areas at the time.

Anyone with any information that can assist our investigation is asked to email john.wilson@northyorkshire.police.uk or call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for John Wilson.
