“A man is believed to have stopped his vehicle at the scene and confronted the two men.

“Officers would like to speak to this witness, as he may be able to assist the investigation.

“Two men in their 30s have been arrested in connection with the incident, on suspicion of assault and a public order offence.

“They have been released on bail as enquiries continue.”

Any witnesses to the incident, or anyone with information, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and select option 2.
