YOBS have slashed the tyres of several cars over a single day in what police believe to be a series of random attacks.

The four vehicles were all attacked in Aspen Avenue and Elmdale Close in Warsash between 11.30am on Saturday, January 8 and 10am the following day.

The cars, including a Vauxhall, Nissan Navara, Renault Clio and a Ford Fiesta, were parked in the road and in driveways.

Police have not established any link between the vehicles that were attacked.

PC Ian Hunter said: ‘It appears that the offenders may have walked along Elmdale Close into Aspen Avenue, possibly from the footpath linking Warsash Road and Elmdale Close, which leads onto Church Road. It does not seem that an individual was specifically targeted.

‘Does anyone remember seeing anything suspicious in the area at between the reported times?

‘This seems to be an isolated incident where, unfortunately, multiple vehicles were damaged.’

Anyone with information should contact Fareham police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
