A warning to all parents of children on the Bankeyfields estate!!
Tonight a child was threatened by a gang of three youths who stole his new bike. The lads were playing in the football area within the park and the bikes were outside, two youths shut all the gates to prevent the lads stopping them and they then rode off on one of the lads bikes.
After reporting the incident to the police PC Glyn Talbot did respond extremely quickly. He took the details and went away to look for the bike as another unit had found two youths one of which was on a bike matching the description given by the children.
Lets hope this one turns out to be a good ending!!!!
Once again, please warn your children to beware of strange children around the Bankeyfields Open Space and Estate. And keep their bikes close, perhaps inside the football area when they are playing in there.
