Appeal after cat killed with air rifle

Police are investigating after a cat died after being shot several times with an air rifle.

Oscar the cat

Oscar the cat made his way back to his home in Scagglethorpe near Malton after being repeatedly fired at.

His owner, who is too upset to be identified, noticed the wounds and took him to the vet.

The vet tried to save Oscar by amputating his leg and removing pellets from elsewhere in his body.

However, sadly he died from his injuries a day later.

The offence was reported to police on Tuesday 29 March 2016 although it is believed to have taken place a week earlier. However, the owner was too distraught to report it immediately.

PC Linda Coles, of Malton Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This was a particularly cruel attack against an affectionate animal, and it has understandably left his owner heartbroken.

“I’d appeal for the public’s help in finding whoever who did this, and we will do everything in our power to bring them to justice for this cowardly attack.”

The motive behind this incident is not clear and police are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch. Please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, ask for Linda Coles and quote reference 12160054750.

Man who threw smoke grenade at a police safety camera van is sentenced

A man who threw a lit smoke grenade at a North Yorkshire Police safety camera van has been sentenced today.

Man who threw smoke grenade at a police safety camera van is sentenced (1 of 2)

Jake Sarup, 22, of Foxholes near Driffield, pleaded guilty to causing a public nuisance.

At  5.30pm on the 6 September 2015, Sarup was in the back of a Vauxhall Corsa which was travelling on the A64 in the village of Sherburn, heading towards Scarborough.

Footage captured by the safety camera van shows the effects of the lit smoke grenade on the busy A64 after it was thrown by Sarup. It strikes the rear of the safety camera van which was carrying out speed enforcement at that time.

The smoke resulted in reduced visibility on the A64 and posed a potential safety hazard to other road users.

Sarup was sentenced to a 12-month community order with 120 hours of unpaid work when he appeared at York Crown Court today, 4 April 2016. He was also ordered to pay £500 in costs and a £60 victim surcharge.

Traffic Constable Andy Forth who attended the sentencing said: “North Yorkshire Police fully supports the prosecution of Sarup. To throw a lit smoke grenade out of a moving vehicle, onto the busy A64 carriageway, was both irresponsible and dangerous.

“It could have resulted in not only a major collision due to the reduction in visibility on the road at that time, but also in damage to property or injury to any other person nearby.”

Dave Brown, Traffic Bureau Manager said: “This deliberate and irresponsible act could have had catastrophic consequences to innocent road users on the road and the court result imposed reflects that public safety concern.”

Police appeal, “Did you witness a collision on the A19 south of York?”

Police are seeking witnesses to a road traffic collision on a busy stretch of the A19 near York.
Traffic

The incident involved two vehicles – a Toyota Auris and a Nissan Torrano – which collided on the northbound carriageway approaching the designer outlet roundabout with the A64.

It took place at around 2.45pm on Friday (25 March, 2016) and the road was busy with traffic, so officers believe other road users may have witnessed the collision. Nobody was seriously injured.

Anyone with information is urged to get in touch with North Yorkshire Police on 101, ask for John Armstrong and quote reference number 12160051963.
