Police investigate string of anti-social incidents in Birchwood

This story is over

Police are investigating a continued string of anti-social behaviour incidents in Birchwood, Lincoln.

Some 15 incidents have been reported since June, where food items have been thrown at houses on Mallory Close, Rockingham Close, Goodwood Way and Woodfield Avenue.

There is a connecting alleyway between all these houses, which police believe the people involved are using to make their escape.

Lincolnshire Police said they “appreciate that this may not seem a serious crime to some”, but it is “beginning to upset the local residents” who have to clean up after these incidents.

The latest incidents took place during the early hours of Tuesday, August 19, between 3.15am to 4.30am, when five houses were targeted with yoghurts, a pot of cheese sauce, jelly, and a large tub of coleslaw.

Three descriptions, of people suspected of being involved, have been given after the latest incident.

The first is a man, aged in his late teens, wearing a baseball cap, stone coloured t-shirt and dark trousers.

The other two are described as 14 to 18 years old, wearing shorts, one wearing a red t-shirt the other a black t-shirt.

There could potentially be a larger group involved because a number of people have been heard running away after the items have been thrown at houses.

If you have any information regarding these incidents, or if you experience anti-social behaviour of this kind, contact Lincolnshire police on their non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 32 of August 19.
