HUMBERSIDE POLICE ARREST TWO TEENAGERS FOLLOWING HOAX CALLS

Two teenagers have been arrested following series of hoax calls.

Humberside Police issued the following statement:

“Two boys aged 15 and 16 from Hull have been arrested in connection with a number of hoax telephone calls reported recently. The boys were arrested following our enquiries into a series of hoax calls to members of the public informing them of the death of a loved one in a fatal road traffic collision which is a very distressing call for anyone to receive. We will question the two boys concerned but continue to appeal for anyone who may have received a similar call to please contact us on the non-emergency number 101 quoting log 588 of Thursday 6 May.”

Following these initial reports Detective Inspector Andy Robinson said: “I would like to reassure people that we are treating these hoax calls extremely seriously. As police officers, we would never contact a member of the public by telephone to inform them of such a tragic and distressing incident.”

If you are contacted by somebody claiming to be a police officer, always ask which police force they are calling from, then if you still have concerns hang up and call 101 from a different telephone.
