We are reminding people the impact anti-social behaviour can have on residents following reports of nuisance youths in Sittingbourne.
Officers are investigating several reports on the Sonora Fields estate where youths have been throwing eggs at houses and shouting abuse at residents.
The latest incident occurred on Thursday 9 February 2023 when eggs were thrown at a front door of a property.
On another occasion, a group of teenagers were seen to shout racial abuse at a resident.
The group are believed to be aged 13-14 years old and officers have been liaising with local schools and other partner agencies to identify those responsible.
Acting Inspector Barry Carr said: 'Our officers well understand the impact of criminal damage and anti-social behaviour of this kind, especially when the victims are elderly and vulnerable.
‘We are working hard to identify those responsible, but would also urge residents to report incidents to us straight away so we can take action.
'I also encourage parents in the area to ensure they know where their children are and make sure they are aware of the consequences of committing crimes of this kind.'
Anybody who wishes to report instances of anti-social behaviour should report it online via the Kent Police website.
Anyone with information regarding the incidents should contact Kent Police on 01795 419119 quoting 46/165054/22.
