Fenland teens bailed over racially aggravated incidents and told to stay out of city
Three boys arrested in connection with a series of racially aggravated crimes in Cambridge have been bailed and banned from entering the city.
Police executed a warrant in Doddington yesterday (Thursday 30) and arrested the teenagers and took them to Thorpe Wood Police Station in Peterborough.
The arrests followed incidents which took place between August and September in Cambridge including racial assault, robbery, theft and assault causing grievous bodily harm.
Area Commander for the south of Cambridge, Superintendent Adam Gallop, said: “The arrests this morning follow an extensive and thorough investigation into a series of disgraceful racially motivated crime towards members of our community.
“We believe these incidents to be isolated to a specific group of people and we hope these arrests send a clear message that these crimes will not be tolerated in our county.”
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of robbery, common assault, assault causing grievous bodily harm and theft.
A 16-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of robbery, racial assault, two counts of assault causing grievous bodily harm, aggravated assault without injury and theft.
A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of robbery, common assault, two counts of assault causing grievous bodily harm and theft.
The boys have since all been bailed and must return to Thorpe Wood Police Station on October 28. Their bail conditions include not entering Cambridge City.
