CCTV appeal to identify motorcyclist – Taunton

We’re releasing CCTV images of a motorcyclist we want to speak to in connection with an assault on a police officer.

An officer approached a male rider in Moorland Road, Taunton at about 2.20pm on Tuesday 30 June.

However, the motorcyclist struck the officer’s leg a number of times with his bike and rode off. The officer was unharmed.

A motorbike, with registration number VU59 BZX, was found abandoned nearby after the incident occurred.

The man we wish to speak to was described as white, late-20s or early-30s and about 5ft 10ins. He was said to have thick dark wavy hair and wore a dark-hooded top and a white full face crash helmet.

PC Simon Dawkins said: “We believe there were a number of people in the area at the time who may have seen what happened and we’d ask them to get in touch with us.

“They, or anyone who recognises the rider, should report the information online through our website, or call 101 and give the call-handler reference 5220143549.”

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5220143549
