Appeal for witnesses after window of Bradford house smashed

Police say they think a car fire in the area is linked to the earlier disorder.

Police investigating an incident in Bradford where damage was caused to a house and car are appealing for information.

It happened in Agar Street at about 8pm yesterday (Tuesday) when several males got out of a convoy of vehicles and used implements to smash a window at an address.

Damage was also caused to a parked car before the males left the scene.

The incident is being treated as a targeted attack and is being investigated by Bradford District CID, who believe a car fire in Round Thorn Place at about 6pm yesterday is linked to the later event.

A 38-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the car fire and is currently in custody.

Detective Inspector Mark Taylor, of Bradford District CID, said:

“We have launched an investigation into this matter and would ask anyone who saw what happened to contact us, so we can progress our enquiries.

“Disorder of any kind will not be tolerated in Bradford District and we are making enquiries to identify those responsible.

“Patrols have also been increased in the area to offer reassurance to residents and anyone with concerns is advised to speak with our officers.”

Bradford CID can be contacted on 101, or by using the options on the West Yorkshire Police website. The log reference is 1912 of 15 June.

Information can also be reported anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers
