Police in the United Kingdom, are looking to arrest those behind a series of water bomb attacks against people who were waiting at a bus stop on a busy street.
Manchester police said that they have warned residents of the Portland House, after receiving numerous complaints from innocent people, saying that they were hit by water filled balloons.
This week, a group of men tried to storm the building to take revenge against those behind the water bomb attacks.
So far, police have been unable to identify the suspects.
“If you know the residents of Portland House, who have started dropping water bombs on people passing below, please get in touch #notthatfunny. It’s already caused an incident where a group tried to force entry to seek retribution, and it is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt,” police wrote on Twitter.
Residents of the building told police that firecrackers were thrown from a window, and they almost hit a girl standing on the sidewalk below.
Police said that a number of cases have been reported in the last week, and they fear that someone could get hurt.
Residents of the Portland House, said that water bombing attacks have been a problem for at least 12 months.
In the latest incident, a resident called police around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, to report a group of men who made threats to stab someone inside.
Police believe that the group had been hit by water bombs dropped from above, and were trying to enter the building to get revenge.
