Other crimes reported last week included an Assault which was dealt with, two minor Road Traffic Collisions, a further Road Traffic Collision with ongoing enquiries into the matter, and a vehicle obstructing the road in Jamestown.

A report of a dog wandering around Jamestown was made, with the dog causing concern and inconvenience to a nearby neighbour. The owner of the dog apologised to the complainant and the matter was resolved amicably.

A report was made for the concern of a vulnerable person. The appropriate agency was contacted to provide support.

The St Helena Fire & Rescue Service was requested to provide assistance to the Medical Team on a matter. This was done without incident.

Until next week – Stay Safe!
