GROUPS OF YOUTHS CAUSING TROUBLE

At our committee meeting on Wednesday we were shown a CCTV photo taken by a camera over a residents front door, it clearly identified a youth who was causing trouble by knocking/banging on doors and running away.
Unfortunately we have received a further report below this morning and agree with the resident concerned that this sort of behaviour must be stopped promptly. Can you please help bring a halt to this unsocial activity which frightens residents and wastes Police time.
“Previously a group of local lads have been banging on our front doors and throwing objects at our houses we have had the same problem tonight (Friday 29/1) where a group of 7 kids roughly between the ages of 12 and 15 threw some bollards that were outside Keston Primary school against my brickwork at the front of the house and threw eggs at the windows of my neighbours house in Lakes Road. If these bollards had hit any windows they would surely have broken them
After last Monday’s incident when they threw a large stick which struck my front door I reported their actions to Bromley Police.
This time my neighbours dialled 999 and the two squad cars rounded up 6 of the youths at the top of Lakes Road by the Fox.
The Police took all their names, ages and addresses and I believe warned them about their future conduct.
I am addressing this to all the residents on your distribution list as I am sure at least a couple of the recipients might be parents of these children and any who had their boys of around ages 12 to 16 out on the evening of Friday 29th up to around 10pm should perhaps ask them where they were and what they have been doing as next time they come calling down Lakes Road the police say they will all be taken into the station for further questioning. My neighbour and I will have no hesitation in calling the police as soon as they appear outside our houses.
I don’t like taking this action but it really does need nipping in the bud before it escalates to something far more serious.”

Kind Regards
KVRA Committee
