At around 2.25pm yesterday (Sunday 1 May 2022), we received a report of concern for the welfare of a male on Stand Lane, Radcliffe.
Officers attended and found a 15-year-old boy with serious injuries. He has been taken to hospital.
Enquiries have, so far, established that it is likely the 15-year-old boy was involved in a collision with a blue Ford Focus. It’s believed the vehicle was also involved in a collision with an 18-year-old man, following which his electric bike was stolen. The 18-year-old has been taken to hospital with minor injuries.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving. He has been taken in to police custody for questioning. A blue Ford Focus, which is believed to have been the vehicle involved in the incident, has been located and recovered from Hazel Avenue, Radcliffe.
