Police probe firework attack claim
A WOMAN said her mother was left shaken after two men threw fireworks at her before trying to run her over.
Several people said they reported the men to police following incidents in the Pendennis Road and Audley Avenue areas of Torquay last Friday evening. A woman who posted on social media said her mother was targeted by the men while out walking her dog.
Wishing only to be referred to as Miss Green, the woman said the incident began when her mother shouted at the men, after they were throwing fireworks in gardens and even at people.
She wrote: “Around the Pendennis area, two grown men [were] throwing fireworks in gardens and at people. My mother was targeted while walking her dog home. She wit- nessed them throwing fireworks into a garden and shouted at them, they threw the fireworks at her and her dog.”
Miss Green said the men then got into a car and drove over a payment and onto a green area in an attempt to run her over.
“Both mother and dog are ok, very shaken but not harmed. This has been reported to the police, who said they’ve had four calls regarding this.”
