Renewed appeal following criminal damage in Weymouth

Buzzz, News

Officers continuing to investigate a criminal damage and graffiti incident at a shop in Weymouth are renewing their appeal for information and issuing CCTV images of the suspects.

On Friday 16 November 2018 a report was received that sometime between 3am and 4am that day two unknown people sprayed paint on the shop door and caused damage to the windows at Timanfaya Tanz salon on Great George Street.

The first offender is described as wearing light-coloured skinny jeans, a Puffa-style gilet and a hooded top with the hood up. The second offender is described as wearing jeans, a hooded coat with a small white logo and a baseball cap.

Police Constable Will Harris, of Weymouth police, said: “We believe this was a targeted personal attack. We take hate crimes extremely seriously and we are determined to investigate all possible lines of enquiry.

“We have made a number of enquiries into this incident in recent weeks and I am now issuing CCTV images of the suspects in the area around the time of the offence. I appreciate they are not the best quality but I hope they might at least help jog someone’s memory or someone might recognise the clothing.

“I would also appeal to all shops and businesses who have not done so already to review their CCTV footage for the early hours of Friday 16 November 2018 to see if there is anything that can assist our investigation.”
