Officers in the West Midlands need your help in finding the people in their caught on camera gallery this month. Officers want to trace a number of people in relation to some shocking incidents. An engineer was attacked with a crowbar while he tried to fix a cash machine, an elderly woman was robbed of £1,300 as she went to deposit the cash and a search for a man who punched a bank worker in the head. These are just some of the latest cases officers are being tasked with solving.
Three cars jump a red light at the same time and an odd vehicle is included in the latest bad driving compilation captured by BirminghamLive photographer Nick Wilkinson on his dashcam. This month, Nick has been forced to slam the brakes on after a driver exits too early on a roundabout, almost seen a collision after a motorist jumps two lanes to make an exit and has been cut up by a lady on a mobility scooter. All the incidents can be seen in the video at the top of the page.
Police released a picture of a man detectives want to speak to after a teenager was stabbed near Wolverhampton city centre. It was issued after the 17-year-old was attacked in an alleyway in Jameson Street, Whitmore Reans. Upon his arrival at hospital, the teen was described as being in a "serious" condition but is now recovering at home. Officers scoured CCTV from the time of the attack, which happened at around 2.10am on February.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
