Runcorn LPU arrest five youths on suspicion of harassment Date published: 2nd October 2015 3.45pm

There have been a number of incidents of Anti-Social Behaviour in the area of Castle Rise, Runcorn, which have caused local residents some considerable harassment and distress.  The arrests follow an investigation into these incidents.

In addition to the arrests made this morning, the local beat management team are working alongside other partnership agencies which include Halton Borough Council and Housing to enforce other measures under Anti-Social Behaviour Legislation alongside the investigation.

In response to this issue Chief Inspector Deborah Hooper of Runcorn Local Policing Unit said:  “Anti- Social behaviour covers a wide variety of incidents, some of which are criminal offences.  This can make life unpleasant for the local community and therefore my team will take positive action and use all the powers available to them to stop it from happening.  I want to thank the local community who have assisted us and I would encourage anyone else in this situation to speak to us so that we can help improve the quality of life in your area.”

Anyone with any concerns about anti-social behaviour or information about any incidents is urged to speak to a local officer or call Cheshire Police on 101.
