A 19-year-old man from Newport, a 31-year-old man from Sandown and a 34-year-old man from Ryde have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. The trio remain in custody at this time.

Island Echo is told that trouble has been brewing in the area in recent days due to a number of individuals being temporarily housed in a nearby hotel between Crescent Road and Culver Parade, in response to the COVID-19 directions.

Inspector Adam Henderson-Parish has said:

“We would like to assure the community that we are conducting increased police patrols in the area and carrying out enquiries. If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to one of our officers.”

If anyone has any information about this incident, please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting Operation Romulus. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting the same reference.

so they have been given somewhere to stay and this is what they do!!!!!!!! Complete and utter tit heads. St Marys & the police have enough to do without arse holes like this!!!!!!! Grow up and take a look around you, petty vendettas and mindless violence should not be at the top of peoples agendas, holding back this silent killer should be.
Just because the sun is shinning please stay home and please stay safe, we are all in this together.

Yet when I say that many of the homeless should remain in the gutter, and not housed at our expense, the weak, naïve on here thumb such comments down, ‘imagining’ that they are ‘just life’s unfortunates’ and NOT as many are, druggy, alcoholic, violent vile low life.

Let them move in with YOU IF you feel different.

This latest crime shows what too many are really like and will be a burden on society from cradle to their grave.

Hope the victim makes a full recovery . Better if the guilty are sent off to the mainland to reside so the Police and NHS and other key workers can concentrate of helping the battle against this virus.

Lethal injection for trash like them would be better. They have got more and more noticeable over the years because of the idiots with positions of authority sticking up for them.

Wouldn’t be the worst thing if we just left the homeless scum to catch it and die, would help cleanse the island. They’re only a drain on society as it is.
