Police are investigating an incident which occurred shortly after 8:00 p.m. on Monday, 19th September, 2022, on South Road near Devonshire Bay.

The incident involved a single rider on a motorcycle pursuing a silver coloured motorcar, east on South Road towards Collectors Hill then back west on South Road to Trimmingham Hill.

The pursuit continued over Trimmingham Hill on to East Broadway then up Spurling Hill to Reid Street and on to Court Street.

It ended near the junction of Parliament and Church Streets when the cycle rode away.

The cycle is described as a dark step though motorcycle.

The rider was a black male wearing a face mask/bandana with a skull print, a dark coloured helmet and a black and white Tee-shirt.

Police are particularly interested in speaking with a taxi operator who was driving his taxi in the area of Spurling Hill, and may have had to take evasive action as a result of this incident.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or has any information on it, is asked to call 211 or the Duty Sergeant at the Hamilton Police Station at 295-0011.
