A PDN source reports that diners in a local restaurant and customers at wine bar in Station Approach, Penarth were witnesses to a violent incident on Saturday night (Oct 1st 2016) in which there was an alleged “stabbing” outside Penarth railway station.
The report says that a “gang” of about 20 people accumulated outside the station after 21:00 hours on Saturday night and it was there that a “stabbing” or “slashing” incident occurred .
Another eyewitness – a PDN poster – says (see post below) that “There were eventually 8 police vehicles in attendance” and that “one young lad was arrested”.
South Wales Police said they had no reports to date of such an incident on their records at the police HQ in Bridgend, but the incident might have been dealt with by British Transport Police.
Police action will not have been helped by the dearth of live CCTV camera-coverage in Penarth . It’s understood none of the existing cameras in the town operated by the “Safer Vale Partnership”are functioning .(See PDN http://tinyurl.com/jolv5at )
