Old folks' units hit by vandals

ROBERT Preston is worried about the safety of his elderly residents after vandals struck for the second time in two weeks on Saturday night.

The culprits broke through the fence to get into Village Life on Dean Street and although they didn't managed to break into any of the units, Mr Preston said it was unfair on the elderly people living in the village.

“They need to show some respect and leave the elderly alone,” Mr Preston, the manager of the village said.

Mr Preston said it was the second attack after a similar incident occurred last Saturday night. He said last year they were also targeted in a vandalism attack where all the plants were ripped out and two flags were stolen from the village.

A report was made to the police yesterday and scenes of crime were investigating.

Anyone with information that may assist police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
