TEENAGERS who hurled stones at a community centre in an early hours attack may also have broken into the same centre six days later.

Police have appealed for information following two separate incidents at Branksome Community Centre in Recreation Road, Poole.

Officers were first alerted at 1.30am on Wednesday February 10 when a window had been smashed.

CCTV showed three male offenders, described as being aged around 16 to 18, approach the centre and try to get in the front doors before throwing stones at the glass window. One of them then kicked the glass before they all left the scene as police arrived.

One of the suspects was wearing a dark jumper with a white Hugo Boss logo across the chest, dark jogging bottoms and trainers.

A second suspect was wearing a thick puffer jacket with two panels of colour at the top and bottom as well as jogging bottoms and trainers.

The third was wearing an open coat with a hooded top that had a colour band and writing across the chest. All three had their hoods up and were wearing baseball caps.

At around 12.50am on Tuesday February 16 police received a further report of a break-in at the centre. A boarded up window had been broken and access was gained to the premises.

Nothing is believed to have been taken. CCTV enquiries showed two offenders whose clothing matched the descriptions of the first two suspects for the incident six days earlier.

Police Constable Cara Bradley, of Poole police, said: “This community facility has been repeatedly targeted, we believe by the same individuals, and we are keen to identify those responsible.

“I would appeal to anyone who has witnessed any suspicious activity in the area, or who has any information that might assist our investigation, to please contact us.

“I would also urge any local residents with home CCTV systems, or motorists who were in the area and have dashcam fitted, to check their footage from the two nights in question for anything relevant.”
