PC Ian Risden, from the Castle Point community policing team, said that although he could not prove the two young boys were involved, they were given suitable advice and made to move on from the scene.
Odd. Proof isn’t something the police often need before they arrest people these days. It’s usually ‘bang ’em up and sort out the particulars later’, or is that only for certain crimes?
Mr Risden said that the police often are called to the area, particularly along Roscommon Way, to deal with nuisance youths.
He said: “If this happens again, call us as soon as you see anything so we can take them by surprise.
“Try and give as accurate descriptions as possible, particularly of clothing.
Would you be able to cope with accurate descriptions? They must be so unfamiliar to you.
“We can issue them with warnings for them not to go to that location for a particular period of time.”
They must be shaking in their designer trainers.
