Teens sought for bus attack

A GROUP of teenagers are being sought by police following 'reckless' vandalism to a bus.

Officers want to find the youths, who are said to be about 14/15 years old in relation to the damage at Dashwood Square in Newton Stewart on Monday night at 10.20 pm.

It’s alleged they threw stones at a Stagecoach bus sitting at the bus stance. As a result, a window on the door of the bus was smashed.  The damage is estimated to be about £3-400.

No-one was injured in the incident.

Constable Rachael Jackson said: “This attack could quite easily have caused an injury and was quite reckless.  We want to speak to a group of young people who were seen at the bandstand. It is a male from this group who was seen to throw a stone and smash the window.  The group consisted of three males and six females, and anyone who can help in this enquiry is asked to call us on 101.”
