Police said they received reports on Sunday December 16 of motorcyclists riding in a ‘dangerous’ manner in the Retford Road area of Handsworth, Sheffield, shortly after midday.
Later that day, the same group was reportedly seen riding dangerously in Treeton Woods, Rotherham, where police said their actions were causing ‘distress and alarm’.
Officers now believe the group was also responsible for causing damage and distressing residents at the petrol station on Prince of Wales Road, in Sheffield, on the same day before they turned up on Retford Road.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 and ask for information to be passed to PC Jamie Walker. You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
