Good Morning, St Ives District Members -

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 22nd to 28th July:

The Broadway - Police have received a report of an incident which occurred outside a restaurant on The Broadway at about 3:15 pm on Wednesday 20th July, in which a 12-year old boy was assaulted whilst cycling along the road. The unknown offender, described as a teenage boy in a maroon shirt on a red and blue bike, kicked the victim's bicycle, causing him to fall off, impact his handlebars and sustain a very serious injury. The boy has been in hospital receiving treatment since the incident occurred.

Station Road - Around midday on Friday 22nd July, a lady shopping at a supermarket on Station Road had her purse stolen by an unknown person, just after she had paid for her groceries. The purse contained cash and cards, one of which was subsequently used by the offender for an unauthorised purchase.

Nene Way - Sometime between the mornings of Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd July, a black kettle-type barbecue was stolen from the back garden of a house on Nene Way by unknown persons. The garden is an open-plan type with no fences, so access for the offender was very easy.

Little Farthing Close - A violent incident occurred outside a house on Little Farthing Close at around 11:30 pm on Saturday 23rd July, in which a male walking home from the Town Centre was assaulted by a group of unknown men who emerged from a car. The victim was assaulted and dragged down the street before losing consciousness, and was later treated in hospital for cuts and bruises. Police have made house-to-house enquiries for further information and investigations are continuing to clarify the details of the incident.

Hill Rise - At around 7:15 pm on Monday 25th July, a car parked outside its owner's home on Hill Rise was criminally damaged by an offender who appears to have kicked the vehicle, causing two dents to the passenger-side door.

Granta Close - At around 10:30 pm on Tuesday 26th July, a car parked on Granta Close was damaged by an offender who threw several large stones at it, causing damage to the passenger-side door.

Crown Close - At 3:30 pm on Wednesday 27th July, police received a report of a unauthorised van parked in a disabled resident's parking bay on Crown Close. Police issued a parking ticket for the offence.
