ANOTHER mum has spoken of her concern after a rock was thrown at her husband and their one-year-old son.

Cydney Wolfe's husband, who does not wish to be named, was walking along Carisbrooke Road at about 4pm yesterday (Monday) with their son and their dog when a jagged rock was thrown towards them by a group of young people.

It landed in the basket underneath the buggy seat.

Cydney Wolfe, of Newport, said: "My husband was furious and very shaken, and my son has been a bit anxious and clingy since it happened.

"I was at work and when he told me, I had an awful feeling of worry for my baby and a terrible sadness about what could have happened."

He said he was not sure if the stone was deliberately directed at him, our son or our very loving dog, but he couldn't see how it could have been thrown without someone realising any of them could have easily been hit.

Cydney said she was very thankful they were all ok but she is very concerned about how this incident demonstrates a lack of empathy and kindness in the way people interact with each other.

She added: "I know a lot of people think young people are the problem but I wonder if all the hate we see in society is affecting these young minds. It's all very sad."

The incident follows the arrest of four 12-year-old boys on Sunday after a rock was thrown at a car driving past McDonald's in Newport.

Mum Claire Brown and her two-year-old daughter, Amelie, were left shaken after the rock — thrown at her uncle's car from the roof of Starbucks, next door to the Upper St James Street restaurant — struck their windscreen.
