Two Arrested After Car Damaged - Witness Appeal

Police are appealing for witnesses after a car was damaged in Cheltenham.

At around 9.15pm on Tuesday 5 June officers were called to a report of a red Citroen, which had had its windscreen cracked with a broom on Selkirk Street.

Inspector for Whaddon Stephen Norris said; "We take criminal damage very seriously. It is not acceptable; it causes no end of hassle and upset for the community. This type of crime impacts upon the lives of all, and I ask that if you did see something to contact the police.

"Officers are regularly out on patrol, so anyone who thinks that damaging property is just a bit of fun, be warned, you will be caught and you could end up with a criminal record."

An officer on patrol arrested two men on suspicion of criminal damage.

A 20 year-old and a 23-year-old both from Cheltenham have been released on police bail pending further enquiries until 2 July 2007.

Anyone with any information should contact police on 0845 090 1234 quoting incident 584 of 5 June or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
