Staff hide after boy runs riot

WOOLGOOLGA Advertiser staff locked their office and hid yesterday morning when a boy ran riot.

Reporter Kira Love said her colleagues rang 000 at 9.40am when they allegedly heard the boy verbally and physically abusing two women at premises next door.

“I was scared for my own safety,” Miss Love said. She said the boy was screaming that he didn't want police there, and he refused to leave.

Police officers eventually arrived to make inquiries, Miss Love said. “What I want to know is where the hell were the police.”

A police spokeswoman said police responded 'as soon as they were able to attend'.
