Police say they are continuing to crack down on crime and anti-social behaviour in Bramley, following a recent increase in incidents.
Inspector Phil Gill, who heads the Leeds West Neighbourhood Policing Team, said there were ‘ongoing efforts’ to identify and deal with local issues.
He said a 17-year-old male was arrested on Tuesday and has been charged with robbery. And a 15-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of theft and robbery and remains under investigation. Insp Gill added:
“We are continuing to target those involved in youth-related crime and anti-social behaviour in the Bramley area following a number of recent incidents, and these latest outcomes show that work is having positive results.
“We are fully committed to working alongside our partner agencies and making full use of all available legislation to tackle any further issues.”
WLD also reported in January on a police crack down on anti-social behaviour, often featuring gangs of youths, in Bramley centre.
