Police carry out patrols following anti-social behaviour concerns


Police have been carrying out patrols following reports of anti-social behaviour.

Pershore Safer Neighbourhood Team has been out on patrol in the Westcott Way area of the town.

This comes following concerns raised about anti-social behaviour in and around the estate.

Back in October, we reported how a teenage boy was left “shaken” after being chased by a man in a balaclava.

The incident happened at around 9.50pm on Friday, October 21, on Strawberry Place and Lucerne Avenue, with both roads connecting to the aforementioned Westcott Way.

The stepmother of the teenager, Anna Crouch, slammed slammed West Mercia’s response, saying it took two days before an officer visited the family.

She felt the incident could have been avoided by an increased police presence in the area.

“As parents, we feel let down by the police,” she said.

West Mercia Police apologised for how they dealt with the situation.

Daniel Fenn, SNT inspector for Malvern Hills and Wychavon, said: “We understand the upset that this incident caused.

“We are sorry the family feel ‘failed’ by our response.  We work very hard to give our community a speedy response to incidents but accept that occasionally this may fall below expectations.”
