Stone hurled at a bus in Thorley Park
The rear windscreen of a bus was shattered at 3.20am on Sunday (Oct 6) when a yob hurled a rock as the vehicle was being driven along Villiers-sur-Marne Avenue.
This follows an incident on Friday September 20 when several items were lobbed at a bus in Friedberg Avenue, causing damage to a window and the vehicle’s windscreen.
The driver feared the bus had been shot at, but a specialist police officer with a military background determined it was more likely that stones had caused the damage.
In recent weeks, police have been called to deal with another instance of vandals throwing rocks at passing traffic. In early September (Sunday 8) two teenage boys were seen flinging stones at cars, while they were being driven along the A120 bypass at Birchanger Woods.
One woman's windscreen was smashed when her car was hit.
Police have warned that the culprits could be charged with criminal damage with intent to endanger life if their actions do lead to a fatal crash. This carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
