Police are becoming increasingly worried about a 74 year old man that hasn’t been seen since 1:40pm on Friday on Hampton Wick high street.
Guiseppe Cavaciuti has Alzeheimer’s and is described as white, 5ft 7, with short brown greying & receding hair with grey moustache and a heavy Italian accent. He was wearing a 3/4 length jacket, white striped shirt, navy jumper black shoes and dark trousers, grey trilby hat and a walking stick. If you may have spotted him or have any information then contact the police on 0208 247 7025.
Recent updates from local Neighbourhood Watch schemes have shown that even in a town that most consider to be very safe, we should always be on our guard for burglars and opportunistic criminals and report any suspicious activity to police. A recent break-in in Munster Road occurred when owners were away over Christmas, access was gained by smashing the conservatory doors
Another incident happened in Oxford Road where through a kitchen side-door, a laptop, mobile phones, car keys were stolen and consequently the owners car. A theft also took place from a car in nearby Anlaby Road where the passenger-side door was forced open and property was taken from inside and the boot. There have been other thefts of sat-navs from cars recently – it’s always advisable to not leave these in your car when not in use and at least remove them from display.
To help combat bicycle theft, there are two up-and-coming Police bicycle security marking events – on the 15th (2-5:30pm) at Teddington train station and
25th January 4-7pm outside Boots. The markings and bike check-ups are free!
Police were called to a disturbance on Broad Street on New Years evening just after midnight – five police cars arrived to break up an altercation that involved a merry but troublesome group and one reveller climbing onto a nearby parked car.
A group from Richmond Council’s youth offending team joined the elderly at a special Christmas party to help them celebrate the season. The group of girls (a mixture of ex-offenders and those in need of guidance) joined residents at Deer Park View care centre in Sandy Lane. The youth offending program is designed to help its members make a positive contribution to the community.
