Three youths arrested after incidents of damage in Narborough

Officers investigating a series of incidents of damage in Narborough have arrested two more people in connection with the incidents.

Police are investigating a number of incidents of damage in the Leicester Road area of Narborough following reports from local people on Monday evening (February 18) that cars and windows of properties had been damaged.

A 16-year-old youth was arrested on Monday evening and a 17-year-old and a 15-year-old youth were arrested yesterday evening (Tuesday February 19), they have all since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Sergeant Mike Cawley of Blaby local policing unit, said:

“We are extremely disappointed with the behaviour of some youths who are congregating in the area on Monday evening, there were a number of reports of thoughtless damage in the area which we are taking extremely seriously.

“We are in the process of taking statements and will look at CCTV to identify all those responsible.

“We have a number of lines of enquiry to follow up and several names have been provided to us, we are in the process of speaking to these people but would urge anyone who was involved or in the area at the time to come forward.

“We are aware that there have been incidents of anti-social behaviour in the past and as a result plain clothes police officers have been patrolling alongside uniformed officers at times and locations identified as having suffered from incidents of anti-social behaviour.

“Sporadic groups of youngsters are gathering in the area but this needs to be balanced with the fact that not all young people are there to commit anti-social behaviour. Any groups seen gathering in the area causing a nuisance are being dispersed.

“However we do urge the local community to contact us if they have any concerns about anti-social behaviour in the area.

“We are working with local youth groups and Blaby District Council and offering activities for young people to get involved in to keep them off the streets.

“We would also ask parents and guardians to help us by ensuring they know where their children are and what they are doing.”

Investigations are ongoing into the incidents that have been reported to us but if anyone has any information which may assist they are asked to contact Sergeant 1868 Mike Cawley at Blaby local policing unit on 101 or Crimestoppers, which is free and anonymous, on 0800 555 111 .
