Incident Near Stanground Skate Park

A social media post yesterday regarding an alleged attempted robbery is quite understandably causing much concern for parents of children attending Stanground Academy.

The social media post reported that two pupils from Stanground Academy were approached at about 8:10am on the 5th February and asked for money by a hooded youth with his face covered. They were then threatened with a large knife but managed to run away.

As you’ll appreciate this is a live investigation involving the police and school and we have asked to be kept informed as to what is being done. Cllr Rush has also notified the local education authority.

If anyone has any information regarding the alleged incident please contact the police on 101.
