CRIMESTOPPERS is offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information on two racially aggravated incidents that saw criminal damage carried out on the property of a 67-year-old woman.

The first incident took place in the early hours of Tuesday, April 3 when, just before 1am, a person walked up to the victim’s property on Pontypridd Road, in Barry, and threw a brick through her front window.

The brick was thrown with such force that the window shattered, causing cuts to the woman's head that required 12 stitches.

Two weeks later, on Tuesday, April 17, an unknown person walked up the driveway of the victim’s home and headed towards the CCTV camera with a baseball bat. The suspect then attempted to damage the CCTV camera.

Just before 1am, two other suspects appeared and one male headed towards the living room window at the front of the property, smashing the window again.

Another suspect remained on the footpath of the property and threw a brick at a separate window causing it to smash. All three individuals left on foot.

Crimestoppers is now offering the reward for information given to the charity that leads to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible.

Wales manager for Crimestoppers, Ella Rabaiotti said: “No-one should live in fear of attack because of their nationality, ethnicity or religious background. Your home is the one place you should be able to feel safe, and the fact that not one, but two racially aggravated incidents have occurred, is abhorrent.

“There have been other, more minor incidents that have targeted the victim, and I am now asking for your help.”
