Investigation into criminal damage in Withernsea
The local policing team are investigating a number of reported acts of criminal damage where stones or other objects have been thrown at windows in Withernsea over the weekend.
There are six incidents which have been reported between 7pm on Saturday 20 February and 5am on Monday 22 February and all are believed to have happened during the evening or into the early hours.
Two of these were reported on North Promenade, two on Seathorne, one on North Road and one on Princes Avenue.
PC James Stothard, Community Beat Manager, said: “I want to provide reassurance to the community that we are taking these criminal damage reports incredibly seriously.
“These mindless acts of vandalism can be really frightening for people, and understandably leave people shaken.
“We have been following up a number of enquiries such as door to door and checking for private CCTV cameras in the areas.
“Our patrols have been increased around these areas too, so I would encourage anyone with concerns to speak to our officers as they’re out and about.
“I would appeal for anyone who has private CCTV around these areas, who has not yet spoken to us, or anyone with any information they think may assist our enquiries, to contact us on our non-emergency number 101 and ask that your information is directed to me as your Community Beat Manager."
