Mayhill riot: Do you know these people? Police issue new photos of people they’d like to speak to

South Wales Police have released new images of people they would like to speak to following the Mayhill riot in May.

Police say that a criminal investigation into the incident is continuing, with 31 arrests having been made so far.

Detective Superintendent Gareth Morgan said: “I would like to thank the local community for its assistance throughout the course of our investigations. The large majority that were present that night were not actively involved in the disorder. The critical task for us has been to identify those who were specifically involved in committing criminal offences that evening.

“What happened that night has had a huge impact on many families and people, the effect of which has continued for some time.”

South Wales Police say that arrest enquires are continuing, however officers would like the public’s help in identifying individuals they are keen to talk to.

Detectives have released a selection of images of people they would like to speak to in connection with the disorder in Mayhill on the 20th May.

Officers believe the people in the photographs could have information which will help their investigations and are keen to speak to them as soon as possible.

Detective Superintendent Gareth Morgan added: “The investigation team have had a challenging task in reviewing in excess of 800 pieces of evidence from CCTV and social media footage which has been obtained.

“Given that volume of footage any help the public can offer in assisting with identifying these persons is considerable. I appreciate that the quality of the images is not very clear, but I am hoping that people may recognise some of those in the gallery imagery.”

Police ask anyone who recognises any of these people, or may have information which may help to contact them online, by email or by calling 101 quoting the reference number on the photo.
