While incidents of this nature are unusual for Harrogate, I can reassure local residents that we are taking these reports very seriously. Extra policing resources have been deployed to carry out high visibility reassurance patrols in the area and to also support the investigation.

I’d to local residents who live or work in the Franklin Road, Cold Bath Road and Park Parade areas; if you have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area, please contact us via 101 and pass that information on. Please quote reference 12190142315.

I’d also appeal to any drivers who were in the Cold Bath Road area on Saturday night (3 August 2019)  between 11.50pm and the early hours of Sunday morning (4 August 2019) who may have captured dash-cam footage, to also contact us.

To reiterate the description of the men given to :

The Park Parade assault, which took place at around 4am Saturday 3 August 2019, the victim has described two assailants; one tall, slim man who was wearing a hooded rain jacket. The other man was described as shorter and stockier than the first man, wearing a hooded rain jacket and jogging bottoms. (12190141727)
