Anti-social biker caught

Alert message sent 19/07/2020 14:09:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Citizen

Today Tyburn neighbourhood officers were on mobile patrols in areas currently affected by anti-social riding of motorbikes.

The officers have sighted a motorbike, whose rider was not wearing a helmet.  Following, at a safe distance, officers have witnessed the rider trying to pull several wheelies and skids along Erdington Hall Road.  The rider, who had not spotted officers, has then returned to his home address and parked the motorbike.

Officers have detained the young male and made checks around the bike and his driving documents.

The motorbike was confirmed to be legitimate, however the driver will now be reported for a total of five driving offences, including careless/inconsiderate driving, driving without insurance and also, for doctoring the registration plate of the vehicle.

Tyburn Neighbourhood team, along with all officers across the West Midlands, are looking to put a stop to these anti-social bikers, but we need the information from our communities to help us do this.  Due to the risk the riders pose to themselves and others, we cannot pursue motorbikes, and as such we need to know where they live, where the bikes are stored and who they are, to approach them in a safe manner.

The biker and motorbike seen today will also have a Section 59 (Police reform act 2002) Notice placed on them, meaning if the rider or their bike are found to be riding in an anti-social manner within 12 months, the bike will be seized and crushed.

Regards,
Tyburn Neighbourhood policing team
