What can we do about this?
I am writing in the hope to raise awareness to what we believe is a serious issue within Ruakaka. Over the weekend, my 63 year old mother’s house was targeted by graffiti (which over time we have come to accept as part of the landscape in Bream Bay) however this has taken a more sinister turn in our view as they claim to be form a group calling themselves the “Rape Gang”, which they have proudly written over her fence.
I understand kids can be kids and are probably more into the shock factor but the reality is that these individuals were at work on my others property on both Friday and Saturday night while she slept alone in the house metres from them – Needless to say, this as scared her immensely knowing that there are individuals with this type of mentality roaming the streets at night in the neighbourhood.
She will not be returning to Ruakaka at all which is very sad given how much she loves the location.
I am not sure if anyone can do anything with this information, but we have notified the police and media in the hope of finding these sick individuals.
