We’ve received a report of knife crime at ‘The Dandy’, just off the north side of Glasgow Road.

Around 5.00pm at dusk this evening, Thursday 15th February 2018, a boy walking through the woodland paths was approached by two other young boys. The approaching pair, aged around 13 or 14 years old, then pulled out a knife and demanded his phone and wallet. Luckily, the plucky youngster pushed one of the attacking boys and managed to run off to safety.

The boys are described as young teenagers and were speaking what is believed to be an Eastern European language.
