A number of youths – caught on CCTV cameras – in a back lane adjacent to Victoria Garage on Redlands Road are now being sought by the Penarth Police.
Police have issued photographs of the youths and are making a public appeal asking for help from anyone who recognises the youths or who can identify any of them.
Officers want to interview the youths “in connection with a number of antisocial behaviour incidents in the area”.
Anyone who knows who they are is asked to contact the police by calling 101, quoting reference 1700080812. If callers do not wish to give their name they can give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Graffiti has been reported in back lanes off Redlands Road where whitewashed walls, garage doors and even the walls of Edwardian houses have been defaced.
There was a serious incident of antisocial behaviour at Victoria Square in Penarth on Friday night when a new information board listing services at All Saints Church was covered with graffiti – apparently by several vandals.
