Witness appeal after criminal damage in Christchurch

29 April 2016
Police in Christchurch are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward following a criminal damage incident in the town.

At around 5.30pm on Thursday 21 April 2016 offenders threw a large piece of concrete at a window of an address in Mudeford.

The side lounge window, which had been partially damaged in a separate incident the previous evening, was completely smashed.

The offender is described as white, aged around 11 years old, with a tanned complexion and short light brown hair. He was wearing a grey hooded top.

A second boy who was with the offender is described as white, slightly older, with a tanned complexion, of bigger build and with dark brown hair. He was wearing a black long-sleeved top and black jeans.

The pair ran off through a park next to the property, into Warren Road and Foxwood Avenue.

Police Constable Alexandra Seymour, of Christchurch police, said: “I am appealing to anyone who saw two boys acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the incident or who knows who was responsible to please call me on 101.”

Investigations are ongoing to establish whether both incidents are linked.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 21:288. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
