Rowan Street: is suffering from antisocial behaviour during the evenings and overnight with males kicking front doors of properties. There will be an increase in the police presence from the Fosse ward team. Any information regarding who is doing this please report to the Police.

Narborough Road: It has been a busy month for the West End of Leicester, the team have been busy out patrolling the Narborough Road and surrounding streets. We are receiving reports of street drinking and antisocial behaviour which continues to be a priority for our local businesses, shoppers and residents. The team have been working hard to tackle these issues both engaging with the street drinkers and using our powers appropriately during a weeklong operation between the City and West area neighbourhood policing teams.

Daneshill Road: An update on the investigation into the Daneshill Road incident has seen two men charged after a serious assault and items found during subsequent searches at properties in Leicester.

A 51-year-old man has been charged with section 18 wounding with intent. The charge relates to a report of a serious assault on Wednesday 20 September. 

Another man has been charged with manufacturing explosives under suspicious circumstances, under Section 4 of the Explosive Substance Act of 1883. They both appeared before Leicester Magistrates' Court in September.

The charges follow prolonged searches at addresses in Leicester. The investigation is continuing but we would like to reassure you that none of the arrests that were made last week were under the Terrorism Act.

We would like to thank the local communities for their patience and understanding while those enquiries were conducted. 

If anyone has any concerns about the incident or the police activity please speak to local officers or call 101.

We are working to reassure local residents, so please speak with the team when we you see us out and about.
