Police are appealing for information after windows were damaged at McDonalds in Mold and a nearby resident assaulted.

North Wales Police says it understands a large group of youths attended the restaurant at around 6pm on Saturday where they damaged a number of windows. The group then moved to the Elm Drive area of the town where cars were damaged and a local resident was assaulted and left needing hospital treatment.

While there have been reports of anti-social behaviour in the area before, this was a serious escalation. Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident; one has been released without charge while two remain on bail.

I would like to reassure the public that this level of anti-social behaviour in the Mold area is unusual and we have stepped up patrols and have a dedicated team of officers looking into all reports

– DCI Neil Harrison, North Wales Police

Anyone with information is asked to call North Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting reference number S167267.
