Police are hunting a group of teenagers who were involved in what they described as a ‘horrific incident’.

It happened at about 3.45pm this afternoon (Monday, 6 July).

A lone woman cyclist came across a group of teenagers on the cycle path that runs from Wigginton Road to New Earswick.

She used her bell to alert them as they were all the way across the path.

In response they followed her home and threw objects at her house, breaking some of her windows.

Police are appealing for anyone who was in the area, or saw a group at that time in the Magnolia Grove area of New Earswick, to get in touch on 101, quoting NYP-06072020-0312.
