The Inspector for Wrexham City has provided an update on an injured man as part of his daily police report.

Last night there were reports of a collision and an injured pedestrian near the Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

Insp Hughes has confirmed today that officers were called to the scene at 7:16pm following reports of a collapsed male on Bradley Road.

He said: “This necessitates a full road closure. I think this was discussed on social media and believed to be a an RTC.

“It’s reported a man had taken a fall, no vehicle involved. He has struck his face causing a visible injury – Ambulance duly attends, and the road is reopened.”

The remainder of the daily police report can be found in full below.

Afternoon everyone and I hope you are well?

Little of note to report in the last 24hrs. I get the feeling things are too quiet at present , maybe it’s my anxiety building as we move towards ‘silly season’

Halloween and Bonfire night always present a challenge for us and whilst they are still a month away, we are already planning our response in regard staffing, diversionary activities in the community and preventative work with the locally authorities such as, environmental clear ups (to remove anything that could be turned into a bonfire!)

Policing in 2022 is no longer reactive, it’s about problem solving and engineering out issues before they happen. Often, we get it right, but occasionally we get caught out.

I feel we are in a good place this year as we have a really great community behind us and I genuinely do feel a change in Wrexham.

We are in a far more positive place and this year with Covid largely behind us (I hope for good), and lots of fantastic feel-good things happening in our community (new episodes of Welcome To Wrexham out today!!).

So, what happening and what can you help us with today?

Well, I’ll start with a positive – at least, it is for the good guys in Wrexham.

Custody was bulging this morning as the night shift seemed to have found some time to round up a number of people who had failed to attend court or had been recalled to prison.

Always quite satisfying to remove these individuals from general circulation as often, if they have no regard for the courts, then they have little regard for the wider community.

I have been in meetings most of this morning and endorsing a couple of application forms for staff seeking promotion. Their forms are now submitted, and I wish them luck.

Let’s have a look at what happened in Wrexham yesterday and some of the stuff your officers have been up to:-

11:00am: Offices called to a local bowling alley to deal with a youth (15) causing issues. Details recorded and youth offending team will be made aware.

11:38hrs: Officers attend reports of missing 14-year-old boy, subsequently located safe & well.

12:01hrs: Items stolen from large retailer in Plas Coch – registration number of vehicle captured, local keeper from Rhostyllen. We’ll be in touch.

12:53hrs: Suspicious youth walking through town. When he passed officers, it stank. He might as well have had a neon sign saying: “I’VE GOT LOADS OF CANNABIS IN MY POCKET”.

Anyway after he made a poor attempt to run away, he was caught by a few officers we had deployed in plain clothes in and around the area.

1 –0 on the foot chases to us.

13:06hrs: Another theft reported, same retailer in Plas Coch – this one detained by security.

It’s been really quiet here recently so this is frustrating. This time it’s suspected to be a 16-year-old, wearing a hi-vis jacket and a cool pair of sandals with SOCKS!! It may be cool now, but it is still a firm no from me.

15:21hrs: Officers are made aware of concerns around a recently made homeless individual. Officer tasked with locating him and ensuring appropriate care and support is in place should he choose to accept it.

Male subsequently located and confirmed that he did not require any support, but we will still be monitoring and help him if required.

23:45hrs: Report of missing 15-year-old girl – subsequently located safe and well.

Not a bad 24hrs – no burglaries, robberies and a lower-than-average day for retail theft, likely due to a number of arrests and periods of imprisonment handed out at the courts.

It just highlights my previous comments about so much being committed by so few. Have a good day all and speak tomorrow.
