Ceredigion: Manhunt continues for assault on police suspect

Published

on

AN INVESTIGATION to trace a man last seen in the Synod Inn area on Saturday afternoon is continuing today, and police are urging members of the public to remain vigilant while not alarmed.
A search for a man who assaulted a police officer before making off has been underway for two days, with officers targeting specific locations in Ceredigion where intelligence suggests he might be.
The operation began when a police officer stopped a car containing two men at around 1.15pm on the A487 at Synod Inn. This was based on information which suggested the outstanding man was connected with criminal activity in other force areas.
The officer was attacked, and required hospital treatment for cuts, bruising and an injured knee, and will be unable to return to work for a significant amount of time.
The two men made off from the scene on foot.
A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and three counts of taking vehicles on Saturday night. Police have been granted a 36-hour extension by magistrates to further question him.
The second man remains outstanding.
Chief Superintendent Peter Roderick said: “We are aware that there is currently a higher than usual police activity in certain areas, and we can understand the concerns of people living in these communities.
“We would like to reassure the community that there is likely to be more risk of harm to our officers than members of the public at this time.
“An investigation to find the outstanding man is ongoing, and a dedicated team of officers is acting on all possible leads to trace him.
“We would urge people to remain vigilant, yet not alarmed, and to report any suspicious information to Dyfed-Powys Police on 999.”

Ysgol Bro Pedr raise funds for life saving machine

Published

on

PUPILS at Ysgol Bro Pedr have raised enough money to buy a defibrillator machine for the school.

The idea came after 15 Year 11 pupils achieved their Level 3 Emergency First Aid Qualification with Ceredigion Youth Service. Pupils felt that it was incredibly important that they and others at the school had the skills, knowledge and equipment to use in an emergency.

Mrs Caryl Jones and pupils raised an outstanding £1,150 through organising a bake sale at the school on 28 March 2019. The school extends their thanks to Lampeter businesses ‘Oh My Cod’ and ‘Y Becws’ for their kind contribution towards the sale.

Guto Crompton, School Based Youth Worker said: “Although first aid is not a mandatory part of the school curriculum in Wales, young people at Ysgol Bro Pedr felt that it should be something that all pupils knew about. This would help them to know what to do in an emergency, whether that be in the school or out in the community. Pupils worked hard to achieve their First Aid qualification which covered aspect such as CPR, casualty management and the use of a defibrillator.”

The defibrillator machine will be placed in the school reception.
