Threats - Asda car park, North Hykeham

We are appealing for information following an incident in the Asda car park.

We are appealing for information after a women was threatened with what we believe to be an imitation firearm around 8.30pm last evening, Wednesday 14 October 2020. 

Two men were seen in a black Honda Civic in the car park, the front seat passenger is reported to have got out of the car and threatened a women before getting back into the Honda Civic, which was then driven out of the car park.  As the vehicle crossed the car park there was a further incident involving a silver Audi A3, it's reported the driver of the Honda Civic drove at the Audi.

One man, aged 37, has been arrested on suspicion of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.  He was arrested when officers attended an address, last evening, at St Peters Avenue, Lincoln. He remains in custody.  Officers recovered an imitation firearm at the address. 

We would like to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of Asda car park and witnessed the incident or saw the black Honda Civic and also the incident involving the silver Audi.

We are also appealing for information on the whereabouts of Bradley Hinch, aged 20, who is wanted on suspicion of conspiracy to possess an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.  The photograph is 4 years old but the Detectives dealing with this investigation hope it may help with information that will lead to his arrest.
