North Yorkshire Police appeal launched to find taxi passengers after attempted murder charge 

North Yorkshire Police have confirmed that a 25-year-old Catterick man has been charged with attempted murder.

It follows an incident that occurred in Little Holtby in the early hours of Sunday 1 December, when a 43 year-old Northallerton man sustained critical injuries.

Police are appealing to anyone who has any information about the incident and has not already spoken to the police, to contact them. In particular, they would like to trace a man and woman who left Club Amadeus in Northallerton at around 3am to get a taxi.

As they climbed into the back of their taxi they were joined by another man who sat in the front passenger seat.

Officers believe that the taxi first stopped in the Elm Avenue junction with Elm Court area of Northallerton before continuing to Little Holtby, and that the couple may have vital information which could assist the investigation.

The suspect was remanded in custody following his arrest on 1 December and is due to appear in court today (Monday 2 December).

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Detective Constable Quita Passmore of North Yorkshire Police via email at or by calling 01609 643 226.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Please quote incident number 12190220234 when providing information.
