Resident fed up with teen attacks
IN the wake of the community fightback against crime in Park Beach, a fed-up Sandy Beach local is considering taking out injunctions against the teens targeting his home and family with vandal attacks and racist slurs.
Kent Lee is even contemplating legal action against their parents.
Last Saturday, rampaging youths walked all over his car, scratching panels and denting the roof, as well as damaging three other cars, including a police vehicle, during an out-of-control incident at Sandy Beach. He has had three sets of numberplates stolen off his car.
Mr Lee, who lives near the beachfront reserve at Sandy Beach, said in the past four years he had seen various degrees of teenage drunken misbehaviour and vandalism of public property and the attacks had gradually increased in frequency and duration.
But since March, when he confronted trouble-makers after they threw a beer bottle through his front window and threw rocks at his house, he and his family have been directly targeted with vandalism and verbal abuse.
