GWENT POLICE are appealing for information after a group of between around thirty youths jumped on a food delivery van that had stopped in Newport and stole food.

The incident happened at Arthur Bliss Road, Alway, at around 6.05pm on Friday (Mar 19).

A group of between 20 and 30, were seen jumping on an Iceland van.

Food was stolen from the van, pictures suggest.

The driver was not injured and left the area minutes later.

Assistant Chief Constable of Gwent Police Ian Roberts said: “We’re aware of reports of anti-social behaviour involving youths in Arthur Bliss Road.

“This behaviour is completely unacceptable, and we will be contacting the business operator as part of our enquiries. We will be reviewing CCTV from the area at the time of this incident.

“Anyone identified as committing an act of anti-social behaviour, or any other offence, during this incident will be prosecuted.

“Anti-social behaviour negatively impacts upon the quality of life for residents. It is not acceptable within our communities, and it is not acceptable for members of the public to act in this way to someone who was merely doing their job.

“We’re keen to get the message out to parents to help us by ensuring they know where their children are, and what they are doing.

“I would urge anyone with any information relating to the identity of those responsible to call us on 101 or contact local neighbourhood officers.”
