MOTORISTS came to the aid of police officers helping them to track down two men wanted on suspicion of assault and possession of offensive weapons.

Officers were called to Milford Street, Mold, at around 5.43pm on Tuesday to reports of disorder.

The suspects, aged 33 and 29 from Bagillt fled the scene, but with public assistance were traced to a nearby field and arrested.

PC Anthony Butlin said: “Thankfully no one was seriously hurt, but I am appealing for information to assist the investigation.

“I would also like to trace the young driver of a black Vauxhall Corsa and the driver of a VW Golf who gave officers chasing the suspects a lift thereby helping us to locate the offenders.

“We would like them to come forward so we can thank them in person for their public spirited actions.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact North Wales Police on 101 quoting reference W130058.
