Sergeant Jackson, from the South Leicester NPA, said: “We believe that there are other cars in these areas that may have been damaged. Officers are currently collating the reports and I would ask anyone with information – especially any CCTV or dashcam footage – to come forward. Were you walking or driving in any of these areas yesterday evening? Did you see anyone acting in a manner that seemed unusual, suspicious or untoward? Any details you’re able to provide could help our investigation. You can pass on information relating to these incidents via calling 101.
