Shop window damaged in Knaresborough

PoliceKnaresborough police are appealing for witnesses after a shop in the town was vandalised.

Sometime between 10.30pm and midnight on Friday 22 June 2012 one of the shop front windows at Rainbow’s End, opposite the entrance to the Market Place on High Street, was smashed.

It is believed that a group of youths were standing on the corner opposite the shop around the time the damage occurred and may have seen what happened.

Officers are appealing to anyone with information about the incident to come forward.

Acting Sergeant Ben Ralston, of Knaresborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:

This is the second time one of the shop’s windows have been smashed and the antique glass means it is very difficult to replace.

It is believed that there were a number of people in the area at the time of the incident as an under 18s night at a local nightclub had just finished.

It is highly likely that someone saw the window being smashed and I urge anyone who can help the investigation to contact the police or Crimestoppers with information.

Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for Ben Ralston or Knaresborough police.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
