Residents are angry after multiple vehicles were damaged in the early hours of yesterday morning, (Sunday) by a group of people.
Vehicles in several streets in Newark were damaged.
“We are currently investigating multiple reports of criminal damage in and around the Cleveland Square area of Newark at around 4am on Sunday (November 19)," said Inspector Charlotte Ellam, the district commander for Newark and Sherwood.
“It really should go without saying but this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated by our neighbourhood policing team.
“Tackling anti-social behaviour is one of our longstanding policing priorities and we carry out daily proactive patrols, including around the Hawtonville area.
"We do this to help deter this activity and to allow us to get to reports as quickly as possible.
“We take all reports of anti-social behaviour extremely seriously and are constantly working with our key partners in the area to find new ways to crack down on this because we know how much of an impact it can have on people’s lives.
“Our inquiries are still ongoing into these reports, so we’d ask anyone who saw anything or who has any other information that could assist our investigation to get in touch with us straight away.”
Information can be reported to the police on 101, quoting 23000715629 criminal damage incident report of 19 November 2023, or by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where reports can be made anonymously.
