Police step up patrols following Newbold Comyn assault report

Leamington Editorial 3rd May, 2023   0

POLICE stepped up patrols at Leamington’s Newbold Comyn following reports of an assault at the popular park.

An 18-year-old man and two boys, aged 16 and 13, were arrested and later bailed as enquiries continue following the incident on Saturday April 22.

Officers have received information to suggest a small number of people might be planning to take part in similar behaviour.

Leamington Inspector Simon Ryan said: “Residents wanting to enjoy the park can be assured that I will have extra officers patrolling to deter any further incidents.

“In the previous incident, the wider public were not affected, but the fact remains that residents have the right to enjoy their park without having to see confrontations or anti-social behaviour.

“As well as boosting patrols, I’m asking parents in the area to please have a conversation with your children over the weekend.

“Ask them where they are going and remind them that their behaviour in public can have serious consequences for them.

Anyone with concerns is urged to report them by calling 101 or online at www.warwickshire.police.uk/ro/report. If a crime is actually in progress they should call 999.
