Three boys who were arrested in connection with a series of racially aggravated crimes in Cambridge have been banned from the city.
Police executed a warrant in Doddington on Thursday morning and arrested the teenage boys.
They were taken to Thorpe Wood Police Station and later bailed to return there on October 28.
The arrests followed incidents which took place between August and September in the city including racial assault, robbery, theft and assault causing grievous bodily harm.
Superintendent Adam Gallop, area commander for the south of Cambridge, said: “The arrests this morning follow an extensive and thorough investigation into a series of disgraceful racially motivated crime towards members of our community.
“We believe these incidents to be isolated to a specific group of people and we hope these arrests send a clear message that these crimes will not be tolerated in our county.”
