Abbotsford youth conflict leads to property damage
Police say about 20 incidents of vandalism reported since May
A rash of vandalism and retaliation between two groups of young men in the Townline Hill area of Abbotsford, B.C., has resulted in thousands of dollars in property damage, according to police.
Since May 11, there have been 25 reported incidents involving South Asian males aged 15 to 25 resulting in damage to homes and vehicles, say Abbotsford police.
"These incidents are predominantly taking place late at night and it appears that the conflict involves two groups comprised of 20 or more associates. There have been a small number of actual face-to-face confrontations between members of each group," said a statement issued by Abbotsford Police on Monday.
Abbotsford Police say the incidents are a threat to public safety and are asking for anyone with information to contact them.
