Youths seen running away from troubled housing estate after ‘loud bang on the window’
Vandals reportedly tried to damage the window of a home on a troubled housing estate.
Residents of Garrick Way and Castle Court, in Ipswich, where there is a lot of sheltered housing, endured a torrent of crime from people being violent and even setting fire to things earlier this year, prompting a public meeting attended by more than 100 people.
There have also been several reports of stone throwing in Castle Court.
Now another alleged incident has been reported to Suffolk police.
A spokesman for the force said: “Police can confirm they received a report of attempted criminal damage in the Garrick Way area of Ipswich on Thursday, January 24 at just before 6pm with a loud bang on a window of a property reported.
“The victim saw three youths running away from the location.”
Anyone with information should contact Suffolk police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
