Offensive graffiti in Trowbridge Park - appeal for information

Alert message sent 18/01/2019 12:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


Police are appealing for information from the public after offensive graffiti was found scrawled across Trowbridge Park overnight.

The vandalism was discovered this morning by the manager of the park but it is believed the damage was caused between 9pm and 10pm yesterday evening.

Up to 20 pieces of graffiti were located on trees, walls and pathways throughout the park.

Sgt Luke Atkinson said: “This is a completely mindless act of vandalism in a popular park in the town, which is well used by young children every day.

“It isn’t just a small area affected – the person, or group of people responsible have vandalised a large area of the park showing absolutely no respect for the park, or those that use it.

“It is estimated that it will cost several thousand pounds to remove this damage so people can continue to enjoy the park and its surroundings.

“We are carrying out an investigation into this incident and have established that there were a group of runners in the park at around the same time as this incident – if this was you, you may have some information which could help with our investigation. We would urge anyone who was in Trowbridge Park between 9pm and 10pm on Thursday 17 January to call police on 101 and quote log number 70 of today.”

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
