Assault On Security Staff, Albion Street, Leeds

Wednesday 15 February, 2017

Police in Leeds are appealing for witnesses after two security guards were assaulted in an incident outside a shopping centre. 

The Leeds City NPT would like to speak to anyone who saw or perhaps took mobile phone footage of the incident which took place on Albion Street in Leeds at about 5.12pm on January 28th. 

The incident took place after staff, who had removed a teenager from the St John's Centre, were approached by a group of about six youths while detaining the teen.   They were then punched and kicked at by the group. 

Neither of the male guards were seriously injured in the incident, in which members of the public intervened to assist them.

PC Neil Clark of City NPT, said: "Investigations are progressing into this incident and we would very much like to speak to any witnesses. There were a number of members of public who were present and some of them could have recorded this incident on mobile devices. 

"Anyone who has footage or who witnessed the assault and has not spoken with us is asked to contact PC 3124 Andrew Baylis at the City NPT on 101. 

"Information can also be given anonymously to the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111."
