Cobourg Police – Looking for Public’s Help with Mischief Reports

In Police Blotter

The Cobourg Police Service (CPS) wants the public to be aware of recent mischief reports involving residential doors being kicked in causing damage, in the Town of Cobourg. CPS is investigating and asking residents to contact the police with any information.

CPS has received three calls about these types of incidents. The most recent incidents occurred in the same area of Cobourg.

• February 01 at 5:10 p.m. on Curtis Crescent

• February 01 at 4:40 p.m. on Carlisle Street

• January 30 – January 31 (sometime overnight) Westwood Crescent

Reports describe two youths kicking the front doors open on the targeted homes and running away. In each instance, there has been property damage.

Police believe the incidents may be linked to a “kick door challenge” on TikTok, where youth record and post breaking down a home door with their hands or feet and running away.

Police remind residents that this activity is aggressive and distressing for unsuspecting homeowners, often causes property damage and may lead to charges. In other municipalities, this challenge has led to dangerous situations.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 905-372-6821 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS or visiting stopcrimehere.ca. Tips received through Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a cash reward. Report suspicious activity to police.
