Windows smashed in two incidents

WINDOWS of a car and a pub were smashed in separate incidents in Kilburn.

Police in the village are now appealing for witnesses to the criminal damage.

Both incidents happened at the Travellers Rest on Chapel Street.

In the first, at 8.15pm on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25, two windows were smashed at the pub.

They were either side of the main entrance. Police said it appears to be an act of vandalism.

A metal bar was later found inside the pub, which officers think was used to smash the windows and then disgarded. The bar is approximately 3ft long.

Then, on Saturday, January 1, at 1.45am, a car that was parked in the pub’s car park had one of its windows smashed.

A man was seen running from the car park and was described as 5’7” tall, slim, and wearing dark clothing.

He wore a hooded top with the hood worn up.

Anyone with information on the crimes is asked to contact PC Simon Richardson at Ripley police station, using the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
