TWO men have been charged following a police incident on a crime-hit estate in Rock Hill.

Police were again called to Breackback Road on Wednesday, September 6, after receiving reports a man wielding a hammer smashing a resident's door down.

West Mercia Police confirmed officers visited the road at 10.20pm to reports of a theft, where two men were arrested and have since been charged.

Cameron Smith, 21, of Birmingham Road, Bromsgrove, was charged with using threatening behaviour with intent to provoke unlawful violence and using threatening behaviour to cause harassment.

Alexander Scholes, 42, also of Birmingham Road, was charged with threatening a person with an offensive weapon in a public place.

They have both been released on bail to appear at Kidderminster Magistrates' Court next month.

The worrying incident is just one of many to hit the troubled area over recent months, with residents claiming to have witnessed a rise in drug-dealing, prostitution, fly-tipping, and regular police raids.

The Advertiser featured the community's desperate plea for better CCTV coverage on its front page last month, and a council task group has since launched an urgent review.

Speaking after this latest incident, Cllr Thompson said: "This is the kind of incident that is happening regularly and it is very wrong that people have to live in fear of this every day - whilst the council think it is okay to protect country villages with CCTV with nothing on this estate."
