4 PEOPLE ARRESTED DURING OAKFIELD DISTURBANCE JUST HOURS AFTER ARMED POLICE DEPLOYED

Pxl 20220623 0232599764 people have been arrested following an disturbance at a block of flats in Ryde during the early hours of this morning (Thursday), which came just a short time after Armed Police were deployed in the town. 

Police descended on Oakvale in Oakfield at around 03:15 following reports of a disturbance at an address in Building 8.

It’s here that officers arrested 4 people on suspicion of affray.

A 28-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear. This follows a report at 18:11 yesterday evening (Wednesday) of a man in possession of an item described as a firearm in South Street, Newport.

Heavily-clad armed officers were whizzed across the Solent to Fishbourne to assist firearms colleagues, with the focus of the incident moving to Argyll Street in Ryde.

Local response and patrol teams took up position in nearby streets including Queens Road. However, officers – including mainland colleagues – were stood down shortly after arriving.

Hampshire Constabulary has confirmed that a  56-year-old man, a 30-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman all remain in custody, alongside the 28-year-old man.

This latest incident comes just weeks after a stabbing at Oakvale, as previously reported by Island Echo.

Yes, it is such a shame that this once lovely island is now just another ghetto with the profusion of yobs, criminals and drug users/pushers. Not a nice place anymore.

Youre acting like it was not used for smuggling back in the 1700’s. Crime always has been, and always will be apart of the Island, just as it is anywhere else. Stop acting like back in the day was better and work to make tomorrow better.

I note you call yourself “ex islander”, so do you actually live here? Of course there has always been crime on the island, however it is getting worse and worse every week. I stand by my comment that it used to be a nice place, however it isn’t anymore.

What many dim people on here don’t realise is these people earn thousands tax free from drug growing and dealing.

Yet these same people claim subsidised rent, council tax, usually have a least one child with issues to claim a disability car and allowance, yet still whinge for free food, school clothing school transport and are vile to all who live near them.

Don’t fall for it, give nothing to the charities that support this type, for they are milking it, will never be grateful and just see those who give as weak.

Rather burn cash that fund this sort.

The kids will grow up even worse, give nothing as they take anyway

It’s true what you say, unfortunately we now live in a Woke far left ideology that think the tax payers should provide everything for them….they all think they are entitled to to anything they want, without any thought of working for a living..

That’s not really fair for those of us living here that are decent, hard working people. Having our lives effected on the daily by these scumbags!! Sometimes we don’t have a choice of where we live, because of circumstances beyond our control.
You can’t tar us all with the same brush.
These idiots have kept the estate awake night after night, with no thought or consequence to them! It’s sickening that they just get away with it because no one has the balls to make a statement!! Unfortunately being threatened for speaking up is a common occurrence and puts people off. Meaning these wasters just get to essentially control the population of the blocks! Enough is enough!!!

If it’s that bad why don’t you just live in the car away from the place?

We could argue all day,but I rather walk out late at night here than in London or other big cities,all these people who carry weapons haven’t got a clue, put them in London one night and they be back straight away.all they are is a small fish in a small pond,

Quite obvious drugs related. The same block as the stabbing, which was because of stolen drugs, so maybe this was revenge.. Same block, same people.. they should have been locked up last time. The smell of cannabis around that block is often horrendous, no doubt supplying the rest of the druggies in that area.. Those saying crime was always here, maybe so, but years ago it was dealt with, a lot harsher than now… was no ‘ wrist slapping’ back in the 1700’s or earlier to be sure !!

So the cops ‘whizzed across the Solent’ did they?
Not by RF or WL, I bet!
Perhaps they should be the ones to take over the runnig of the ferry ‘services’!
