We’ve been asked to share this by a local resident –
“Just to let parents be aware that on Saturday the 8th of August during the evening at 6:45pm my son, who’s 12 was cycling home. He was on Avondale Road coming up towards the roundabout at Killiney Towers there when 10 boys all around 15 years old jumped him.
James unfortunately was on his own and terrified. They threatened him and eventually stole his new bike. The Garda came straight away and did they’re best to find them. They brought us around for an hour in their car looking for them but they had fled. Please tell your children to be aware of these big groups and stay safe and stay together. Very sad.”
