Police appeal for witnesses after incident outside a bar in Lymm
Main article content
Police in Lymm are investigating a potential hate crime which happened outside the Lymm and Tonic bar at The Cross.
Sometime between 11pm and 12am on 1 august a woman was standing outside the bar when a man who was with a group of people asked to see the woman’s walking stick. She said no, but the man took the stick and walked off with it.
She followed him along the road toward the canal towpath repeatedly asking for it back when the man turned and threw it at her causing the walking stick damage.
PC Samuel Clarke said: “Thankfully the stick missed the victim, but she has been left shaken and upset by this incident. This was a specially designed walking stick and now needs replacing thanks to the actions of this man.
“I’d urge anyone with CCTV or who was driving past and captured the incident on dash cam to contact police. If you have any information please contact us.”
Anyone with information should contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting IML1052268. Alternatively information can be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
