Detectives are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a man involved in an incident in Frenchwood today (Wednesday 5 January).


Officers were called to Selborne Street at 12.36pm following an altercation between two men inside and outside of a silver Vauxhall Astra.

The man shown in the CCTV image is being treated as a potential victim of a crime, and police say they urgently need to speak to him.

He was wearing a black puffer jacket, dark jeans and black trainers, and has not been seen since the altercation.

Det Insp Paul Whitehead, of South CID, said: “We are at the very early stages of our investigation and we are still trying to establish a full picture of what has occurred. Our priority at the moment is locating the man in the CCTV to ensure he is safe and well.

“I would ask anybody who recognises him or anybody who has information on his whereabouts to call police straight away. Similarly, if anybody saw a silver Vauxhall Astra driving erratically in the area at that time I would ask them to contact us.”

Anybody with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting log 0538 of January 5, 2022. For immediate sightings of the man in the CCTV image call 999.
