Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after incidents of criminal damage and anti-social behaviour in Bletchley.

At around 6.45pm yesterday (15/11) a number of reports were received of a small group of youths engaging in anti-social behaviour on the Lakes Estate.

The youths were aggressive towards members of the public and threw stones at buildings and people.

During the incident, a police car and the front door of a property were damaged.

Sergeant Rena Galardziak from the Bletchley neighbourhood team said: “The investigation into these offences is continuing and I ask anyone who witnessed this last night to get in touch with any information by either using our online form or calling 101, quoting reference 43180350151. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

“My team and I are continuing to work on the issue of anti-social behaviour in this area which is caused by a small group of youths. I know that this behaviour is having a real impact on the quality of lives for residents and local businesses.

“Reporting incidents like this to us this will help us to work with other agencies to eliminate this problem and stop offenders from behaving in this way and I urge those who witness anything to let us know rather than try to take the matter into their own hands.

“If a crime is in progress, you should call 999. Otherwise, please report incidents to us either online or by calling our non-emergency number 101.”
