MAN ARRESTED OVER ASHEY HIT AND RUN BAILED BY POLICE


A man who was arrested in relation to Thursday’s hit and run incident in Ryde has been bailed – but Police won’t confirm what he had been arrested on suspicion of.

As previously reported by Island Echo, a 24-year-old man from Newport was arrested as part of an investigation into a collision between a car and a pedestrian on Ashey Road during the early hours of Thursday morning.

A cordon and road closure were put in place on the busy stretch of road for around 15 hours whilst specialist officers investigated the incident, which left a man in his 30s with injuries.

Following the incident, Hampshire Constabulary released an appeal for information and launched a hunt for a dark coloured car with front end damage. Several hours after the appeal, a car was seized by officers from a car park just a mile from the scene.

However, the force have been unable to comment on what offence the male was arrested on suspicion of – despite several attempts by Island Echo. It is also unknown when he is bailed until.

It is known that a house on Ashey Road was cordoned off for a time on Thursday afternoon as detectives probed the circumstances of the hit and run.

Investigations continue.

so, the police will keep quiet about the identity of someone driving a car and injuring someone, but happily release the details of men/women accused of sexual crimes, before any trial has taken place – why the difference.

Being charged. This person hasn’t been charged with an offence, they are under investigation. Details are only released when people are charged and sent to court of an offence.
