POLICE in Glasgow are hunting a mindless vandal who slashed the tyres of 35 cars at the weekend.
All of the vehicles, parked in streets around the Knightswood area, had at least two tyres punctured between 10.30pm on Friday and 7am on Saturday, meaning more than 70 tyres were damaged in total.
Strathclyde Police Detective Constable Scott Bruce said it was an act of "wanton vandalism" by someone with a "total disregard for the property of others".
The targeted cars were parked in Archerhill Avenue, Archerhill Crescent, Loanfoot Avenue, Glanderston Drive and Polnoon Avenue.
DC Bruce from Drumchapel CID appealed for information.
He said: "Whoever did this obviously had no concern for the distress, inconvenience or cost that this has on the people involved. Each car had at least two tyres punctured, some had four.
"Although it would appear that it happened quite late at night, the area is residential so it is quite possible that someone may have seen or heard something that will help us with our enquiries.
"The person who did this might not think that this is a big issue but to the owners of the cars it is stressful, very upsetting and can cost a lot of money to replace."
Anyone with information regarding the vandalism spree is asked to contact Drumchapel police office on 0141 532 3600 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.
