By Katie Davis

A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after a parked car was targeted.

The 15-year-old, of no fixed address, was arrested by patrols in a car park in College Walk, Margate during the early evening yesterday.

The arrest was in relation to an incident on Tuesday, November 21, in which a car windscreen was reportedly damaged whilst parked in the car park.

The teenager, who was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage, and possession of cannabis, currently remains in custody.

Officers from Margate Task Force and the Thanet Community Policing Team have been carrying out patrols of the area following concerns of anti-social behaviour.

During the evening, officers gave a dispersal notice to a 13-year-old girl for abusive language.

They also dispersed a further five teenagers aged 15 and 16 years old following reports of anti-social behaviour in the area.

Sergeant James Ross from Thanet Community Safety Unit said: "We take reports of anti-social behaviour seriously. 

"Such behaviour  - although usually caused by a minority - is not acceptable and our officers will take action to combat any issues."
