Gloucester Police/Fire: Police target kids in Hampden Street vandalism

Police received a call from a Hampden Street resident at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday on reports that a group of kids were knocking on her door and banging on her window.

Police searched the area and did not find the kids. But officers were called back to Hampden Street at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday on reports that the same three kids were once again banging on the home’s doors and windows.

The resident’s grandchildren reportedly chased the three boys down to Gloucester High School. Police searched the area, but did not find the perpetrators.
