Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon, Upwood and Raveleys Members -

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your communities, reported to police during the period 29th March to 4th April:

Ramsey Road, Upwood - Just after 10:00 pm in the evening of Tuesday 29th March, police received a report of suspicious activity in the vicinity of the Upwood Primary School in which four persons with torches had been observed on the School premises, looking into classrooms. Police patrols attended and located four young people, who were spoken to and sent home.

Ramsey Road, Kings Ripton - At 10:30 pm on the evening of Thursday 31st March, police were called to a road-traffic incident near the junctions of the Wistow and Wood Walton roads, in which one car was reported to be in the ditch. No injuries were reported and the vehicle in the ditch was later recovered, with the incident closed soon after midnight.

Chapel Road, Ramsey Heights - Just after 1:00 pm in the afternoon of Sunday 3rd April, police received a call regarding a violent incident between a motor-cyclist and a car-driver, in which the motor-cyclist had become abusive. Police attended and confirmed that a public order offence had been committed.

Huntingdon Road, Upwood - Just after 4:00 pm on Sunday 3rd April, police received a report of dangerous and inconsiderate driving when a car approaching two horse riders from behind had deliberately accelerated and sounded its horn as it overtook. Fortunately the horses and riders were unharmed, and the riders were able to give police the registration number of the car involved.

You may also like see details of offences and incidents reported in the Ramsey area during the same period:

Fletchers Close - Sometime during the night of Friday 1st / Saturday 2nd April, unknown persons caused damage to a car parked outside a house along this street by scratching the paint-work on the driver's side rear door.

Chapel Road, Ramsey Heights - Between midday and 3:00 pm on the afternoon of Saturday 2nd April, a locked shed used to store horse tackle was broken into and equestrian items inside were damaged.

Ramsey Heights - Police attended linked incidents at Chapel Road and Ugg Mere Court Road in the early evening of Monday 4th April in which two cars were in collision and a violent assault occurred.

One final offence to mention concerns telephone fraud. On Friday 1st April, police received a report of an elderly Ramsey lady who had been persuaded to transfer a large amount of money from her bank account to that of a fraudster. The caller was very plausable, told the lady that her bank account had been compromised, and gave her instructions to withdraw her money and send it to a false account. He also told her not to contact her bank to discuss this as bank staff were themselves suspects.

Please always be aware of the many ways in which fraudsters can try to take advantage of you. Police advice on fraud can be found on the Cambridgeshire Constabulary website and also on the website of Action Fraud, the UK's national fraud and cyber-crime reporting centre - .

As always, if you have information relating to any offence, or are concerned about any suspicious activities, please contact police by using the '101' telephone number. Alternatively, you can use 'Crimestoppers' to make a report anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by using their on-line contact form. In an emergency, or if you witness a crime in progress, always use '999'.
