The male public toilets at Albert Road

The male public toilets at Albert Road

A Penarth man has been charged with a public indecency offence after two town centre Police Community Support Officers (one of whom was female)  responded to a call to the public conveniences at Albert Road.

The PCSOs were the nearest officers to the scene –  and the first to respond  – after an eyewitness reported the alleged conduct of the suspect to South Wales Police by phone.  The alleged offender is due to appear in court within the next two weeks.

The incident was amongst the cases reported for January for the St Augustine’s Ward to the quarterly ward police/public liaison PACT meeting held last night at Tabernacle Church.

Other incidents recorded in St Augustines Ward (which includes the Town Centre of Penarth)  during January  included :-

  • Shoplifting 6
  • Burglary 1
  • Bike Thefts 4 (mostly stolen from front gardens)
  • Theft from Motor Vehicle 3
  • Drugs 1 (a man was arrested after a search warrant had been excecuted)
  • Assaults 2

The PACT meeting also discussed the value of “Victim Impact Statements” and local police were also praised for their continuing work in the field of domestic violence .

Discussing public attendances at PACT meetings Cllr Gwyn Roberts (Labour St Augustines) floated out the idea of holding a “Penarth-wide” PACT to possibly replace the current ward-level meetings but it was pointed out that such a meeting would involve releasing all the local ward PCSOs in Penarth simultaneously.

    • Eyes and Ears says:

      I know of 2. I also know of some people who are no longer in prison and are back in Penarth. Probably just a coincidence.

    Lesson is not to park on the “private grapevine” it doesn’t sound a safe place at all, is it a new development.
