Hello omokoroa community, I am posting on behalf of the community board of which I am deputy chair.
I am aware of issues ( as is the community board) surrounding threatening and abusive behaviour of some boys at the skate park.
As of yet I am not completely sure of the identity of the child concerned or if it is the same child that is repeatedly causing distress with his behaviour.
I would like to let you all know the community board and the council are taking this seriously.
I have spoken with the police and the advice that has been given I pass on asking that this is followed.
If anyone is experiencing threatening or abusive behaviour please call the police, call 111 this will get the police out as quickly as they can. If you are also witnessing someone else experiencing this and they are unable to call for themselves please do it for them. When you call let the police know the nature of the incident and it will be logged on file.
Please be sensible, we do not want our community to turn on each other but we will also not tolerate unacceptable behaviour from anyone.
We will need to follow the due procedures and processes to deal with this in the correct and fairest way.
If you would like to discuss I am happy to do this.
