There has been a further incident of unruly kids on bikes deliberately blocking a road in Penarth and harrassing motorists and pedestrians.
In the wake of similar incidents in Victoria Road, Penarth Esplanade, Lavernock Road and in Cardiff, it is now reported that there was a further incident on Brockhill Rise, Penarth at 16:15 on Saturday August 19th.
A number of boys on bikes – aged between 10 and 13 – were said to be deliberately blocking the road – disrupting traffic coming over the crest of a blind hill. Motorists were being forced to brake hard to avoid an accident.
One eyewitness – a man walking home with his grandson – says 3 or 4 the boys blocked the road whilst the rest of the gang “laughed and shouted encouragement” . He told PDN that what the youngsters were doing was “very dangerous”.
When a passing pedestrian – walking home with his grandson – warned the tearaways about their behaviour, members of the gang began following him home in a menacing fashion.
As the boys are apparently below the age of criminal responsibility it’s believed unlikely the police can do anything about the problem.
