Detectives in Calderdale have released CCTV images of several individuals they wish to speak to regarding the disturbances on Bonfire Night in Halifax last year.
Numerous reports were received on the evening of Saturday, 5th November, involving large groups of young people in the vicinity with fireworks.
An extensive investigation has been underway following the disorder in the Park Ward area, leading to several arrests for offences related to criminal damage, public order, and fireworks.
A total of 28 individuals have been arrested thus far. Those apprehended have either been released under investigation or on bail with specified conditions.
Through ongoing inquiries, additional suspects were identified via internal communication and dedicated support from the Calderdale Community Safety Partnership.
Detective Chief Inspector Michael Cox, of Calderdale District Police, said; “Many hours have been put into investigating the incidents from Bonfire Night last year and bringing those responsible for the disorder to justice.
“Detectives are now in a position to issue images of those who still need to be identified and spoken to as they may be able to assist with ongoing enquiries. If you do recognise anyone pictured below, please make contact to provide information which may support the investigation.
“We were clear in our run-up to Bonfire night last year that we would fully investigate any anti-social behaviour by those who seek to risk the safety of the wider community and we remain dedicated to bringing those responsible to justice.
“This type of behaviour is not going to be tolerated on our streets, we work alongside partners to help our communities feel safe and we need our communities to support our investigation with any information they may have.”
“A young man suffered fatal injuries in the area during these Bonfire Night incidents and we are directly appealing to the local community to get in touch if they can identify any of those pictured below.”
