Criminal damage - Witney

Police are appealing for the public's help to try to catch vandals that have smashed a community centre’s windows.

Ceewood Hall in Fettiplace Road, in Witney, was targeted overnight last night (between 18/9 to 19/9) when five windows were smashed. The vandals broke the windows by throwing large stones against them.

The community centre's windows have been broken on at least two other occasions recently and police believe the same people may have been responsible.

PC Ross Clarkson, of Witney Police, said: "It is very sad that the windows of the centre have been broken yet again.

"The damage is estimated at about £1000.

"I hope parents will ask their children where they were and who they have been with. I also think there are plenty of young people in the town who have information about this and I would urge them to get in touch with me or Crimestoppers anonymously."

Anyone with information should contact PC Ross Clarkson, of Witney Police, on 0845 8 505 505 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
