Police have been called three times in two weeks to reports of assaults by groups of youths in Broadstairs Rec.
On March 13 officers and an ambulance were called when a schoolgirl was targeted by two boys.
The girl, believed to be in Year 7, had her blazer and jumper smeared in mud and then thrown in the bin during the bullying incident. An ambulance was called after the girl passed out. It is believed the boys involved have now been subject to a school suspension.
A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police was called to a park near Lloyd Road in Broadstairs at 3.57pm on Wednesday 13 March to a report a girl had been assaulted.
“No injuries were sustained but the victim was seen by paramedics as a precaution. Officers have conducted initial enquiries and it has been agreed by all parties that it is a matter for the schools to address.”
Just five days later police were again called to a report of a group of foreign language students being verbally and racially attacked. A witness said some 20 youngsters, aged between 10-12, were involved in the incident.
A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police attended the park near Lloyd Road in Broadstairs following a report of children causing a disturbance at 3.37pm on Monday 18 March. Those involved had left the scene prior to the attendance of officers.
Enquiries are ongoing to identify any victims, and anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/51422/19.”
On Wednesday (March 27) police were called yet again to a report of a schoolboy being assaulted.
British Transport Police attended at 5.46pm but say as the incident occurred outside the station it was handed back to Kent Police.
A Kent Police spokesman said: “We are making enquiries with colleagues from the British Transport Police who attended a report of an assault on a boy in the Lloyd Road area of Broadstairs, which was reported to have taken place before 4.50pm on Wednesday 27 March,”
Surely PCSO’s could patrol this area to put a police prescence on it. That normally deters thugs. It nothing happens then they will just be emboldened to carry on.
I wonder if it’s the same lot on the bikes causing problems?
2 of the foreign students attacked have been staying with us. They returned home on the evening that it happened panicked and frightened, with their parents on the phone in a state as they couldn’t do anything to help. They have come from South America so they are very far from home. On their first week with us they commented how wonderful it was that England/Broadstairs is so safe and was amazed that everyone was happy walking about without being assaulted. How sad that these cretins have ruined our country’s reputation. Well done, how clever of you to scare innocent kids. Let’s hope they get a taste of their own medicine and someone stands up to them. Waste of space, just lock them up and throw away the key now. They will never amount to anything in life without even basic empathy for others. Where the hell are their parents? If they allow their kids to cause damage and roam the streets like animals then they can’t be any better themselves. Absolute utter morons.
Sit around for long enough your hear them all bragging about there knives and see them comparing weapons too little wastes
