Vandal Scandal

Police are appealing for information after two young men caused a trail of damage to homes and vehicles in Caldbeck Avenue and surrounding roads between 01.00-02.00hrs on Saturday 2nd February.

More than a dozen reports have been made by residents about broken fences, walls, gates and windows. Some reports mention aerials and wing mirrors being broken on vehicles. Other roads hit by the damage include Browning Avenue and Brinkley Road.

PC Luke Lazell, of Worcester Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team, said this was mindless behaviour designed to upset and distress local residents. “We urge the public to come forward with any information that could help us catch those people responsible.”

One suspect is described as a white male, aged 24, 5ft 9in tall and of large build. He had short cropped hair, had tattoos on his arms and had dried blood around his nose. He was wearing a white T-shirt.

The second suspect is described as a white male, aged 25, 6ft tall and of slim build. He had dark brown hair.

Local officers have visited residents and are appealing for any information about who may be responsible, or if residents saw anyone acting suspiciously, or heard any unusual noises. Worcester Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team can be contacted on 020 8649 3590. Email: worcesterpark.snt@met.police.uk
