Major police operation sees Eastville serious assault suspect arrested in Bradley Stoke

Posted on Tuesday 11th September 2018 at 9:59 pm by SH (Editor)

View into Manor Farm Crescent from Brook Way.

A wanted man arrested during a major police operation in Bradley Stoke last Friday (7th September) has appeared in court charged with a number of offences relating to a serious assault that took place at the Tesco Extra store in Eastville a week earlier.

The 34-year-old, from Easton, appeared at Bristol Magistrates Court on Saturday where he was charged with two counts of wounding with intent, one count of affray, one count of possession of an offensive weapon and one count of dangerous driving.

One eye witness account of Friday’s raid on a residential property in Manor Farm Crescent (off Brook Way) described a “huge police presence [with] undercover and armed police and loads of cars”. Other witnesses reported seeing “loads of armed police” and one said the operation looked like “an anti-terror raid [with] full tac gear”.

The man arrested in Bradley Stoke had been named as a suspect by police earlier in the week. Members of the public were advised not to approach him but to call 999 if they saw him.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Bristol Crown Court at a later date.

It was revealed on Saturday that two other people had been arrested for “assisting an offender”, but they have since been released “under investigation”.

A Bristol Post report on the Eastville incident described how horrified shoppers were forced to flee the shop via the emergency exit after what police later described as a “disorder” started inside the store and spilled out into the car park. A 43-year-old man suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries in the incident. A bladed weapon used during the assault was later recovered by officers.

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 29-year-old Asian man was subjected to racist abuse as he walked through an underpass that connects Bradley Stoke with Stoke Gifford.

It happened at about 7.30pm on Thursday 5th July in the Winterbourne Road underpass, between Huckley Way and Oxbarton.

A group of about seven young people were in the underpass and one young man shouted racial abuse. He was described as black, aged about 18, about 5ft 7ins tall and of slim build with an Afro hairstyle.

The suspect was with a group which included a white man of a similar age, who was about 5ft 9ins tall, with blond hair and two young women, also white. The man who was abused described being followed a little way but then left alone.

Neighbourhood officers are investigating, and anyone with any information which could help is asked to get in touch through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/ contact, or by calling 101, quoting reference 5218149148.

Alternatively, ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call.

Car and keys taken in burglaries at two homes in Bradley Stoke

Posted on Friday 8th June 2018 at 5:17 pm by SH (Editor)

Police car.

Police are investigating after two burglaries were reported in Bradley Stoke this morning, Friday 8th June.

Officers were called just after 9.30am by a householder who disturbed two people after the dog started barking. It’s believed the intruders gained access to the house off Hawkins Crescent through the ‘dog flap’. They made off immediately on realising someone was at home, but took a set of keys.

One was described as of mixed race appearance, aged over 18 and wearing a blue backpack. The other was of similar age and appearance, and wore a grey coat.

A second burglary was reported just before 10.30am. Officers say they are grateful to a witness who called the police straight away after hearing an alarm sounding at a property off Westfield Way while the householders weren’t in, and for taking the time to check. The witness reported seeing two men leave the property in the householder’s car, which was later recovered in Arlingham Way [Patchway]. Police attended and found a window at the property had been forced. It’s not yet clear if anything else has been stolen.

One man was described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5ft 11ins tall and of medium build. He wore a white baseball cap. A second was said to be wearing a grey hooded top.

Anyone with any information which could help police enquiries into either incident is asked to get in touch through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/contact, or by calling 101, quoting reference 5218125325 (Westfield Way area) or 5218125227 (Hawkins Crescent area).

Alternatively, phone the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call. You could even qualify for a reward and still remain anonymous.
