Can you help us find this man?
Patrick Ronan, 24, believed to be from the West Midlands area, is wanted in connection with two incidents which occurred in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday, September 1st) in Blackpool.
The first was an assault which took place on a tram in the Norbreck Castle area at around 12.20am, when a man, a woman and a girl assaulted several people who were not known to them.
The second incident occurred a short time later, when a man, woman and girl approached a man on a moped in Anchorsholme Park, before making threats towards him and making off with the moped.
A woman and girl, aged 23 and 13 and both from Birmingham, were arrested not long after on suspicion of assault – ABH, criminal damage to a vehicle and taking a motor vehicle.
We now want to speak to Ronan as part of our enquiries and are asking anybody who has seen him, or knows where he may be, to get in touch.
