A teenager has been arrested after he was seen to damage two Scarborough police vehicles as he left the court
At around midday on 6th Jan, the staff at the Scarborough Justice Centre reported to the police that someone was in the process of damaging a marked police vehicle on Northway outside the court.
According to North Yorkshire Police, the male had just left the court building on an ‘unrelated matter’.
Officers attended and arrested a 17-year-old male on suspicion of criminal damage.
An Iveco police van as well as a Peugeot Partner van – used by crime scene investigators – were both damaged.
The passenger side wing mirrors had been knocked off, meaning that both vehicles were taken out of service until they can be repaired.
