Appeal to Trace Male after Racially Aggravated Public Order

Police are appealing to trace a male that they want to speak to in connection with a report of racially aggravated public order in Middlesbrough.
Officers would like to speak to the male in the image below as he may be able to assist with their enquiries.
 
The incident happened at around 5:40pm on Sunday 14th June as two women, both aged 19, walked down the steps from Newport Bridge on the Middlesbrough side of the bridge near to Newport roundabout.
 
They were approached by a male on a small, dark motorbike who shouted racial abuse at them, whilst trying to intimidate them both by driving his motorbike in front of them as they tried to walk away.
 
The suspect is described as a white male, around 5ft 6” tall, aged in his late twenties, missing front teeth and wearing khaki clothing.
Officers would appeal for the male to contact them, or anyone who may know the identity of the man in the image, to contact Cleveland Police on 101, quoting event number 95596.
