Air Rifle Incidents in Eston

Overnight on 24th November (Friday) a number of windows in a block of flats in Barley Hill Close in Eston were damaged by an air rifle.  Thankfully no one was injured however it caused hundreds of pounds of damage.

This comes after a 12 year old Jack Russell dog was sadly killed by someone firing an air rifle in the same area early on the morning of Sunday 19th November.  At that time two suspicious people wearing balaclavas and riding a motorcycle were seen. They left the scene after shots were heard and the dog was discovered.

We would ask anyone who has information about any incident involving an air rifle to contact Cleveland Police via the 101 number. 

Information on both the criminal damage to the windows and the sickening attack on the defenceless animal can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers via its website at www.crimestoppers-uk.org or by phoning them on 0800 555 111.
