Vandal targets parked cars

Published 01/07/2013 01:53:50 PM

Police in Wigan are hunting a vandal who damaged cars in the Atherton area.

The vandal smashed the wing view mirrors of a black Renault Clio and a Citreon Saxo in the Liscard Street area between 2am and 11.30am on 16 December 2012.

Police have now issued a CCTV still of the suspected offender and are appealing to anyone who recognises him to come forward.

It is unknown if the vandal struck anywhere else.

Police Sergeant Darren Agnew said: "Whomever is responsible for this mindless vandalism should be ashamed of themselves.

"They clearly have no regard for anyone else's property. As well as the financial hardship it has caused the victims, there is also the added stress of sorting out repairs and rearranging work and home commitments. This was obviously of no concern to the offender.

"I would ask that people look very carefully at the CCTV still and if you suspect who may be involved, then please call us immediately.

"We do not know if this man targeted any other cars that night but if your vehicle was vandalised in any way on that evening, then please let us know."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Atherton Neighbourhood Policing Team on 0161 856 7319, email or call the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
