Windows smashed at resident’s home which is being regularly targeted by thugs

POLICE at Lyme are hunting “cowardly” thugs who are making a resident’s life a misery.

Windows have been smashed at the man’s home, at the bottom of Sherborne Lane, during a series of attacks, which continue into the early hours.

Community Beat Manager PC Richard Winward said the young culprits’ behaviour was “cowardly, disgusting and totally unacceptable”.

He told The Herald: “The harassment consists of banging on his windows and door, and there were two windows smashed last week.

“The latest attack came last night (Wednesday June 22) at about 9.30pm and involved a female who was wearing a yellow coloured top. She banged on the door.

“We are looking into installing devices to catch the offender. I would welcome any information as to the identity of the people responsible.”

Anyone with information about those responsible should contact PC Winward on (01305) 222222.
