North Wales Police are asking for the public’s assistance following a car being extensively damaged whilst parked outside the owners home in Maes Gwynedd, Caernarfon.


Investigating officer PC Tony Davies at Caernarfon said “On 31st October 2012, in fact Halloween night,  a local man parked his blue Vauxhall Vectra on the street outside his home in Maes Gwynedd, Caernarfon.  The following morning he discovered that a paint stripping substance had been poured over his car causing extensive damage.


“Enquiries made in the area have revealed a CCTV camera captured an unknown man walk from the direction of Maes Heulog and squirt a substance onto the car shortly after 8pm the previous evening (31st October).  Seconds after the first attack the man is seen to return and squirt the car for a second time.  On this occasion four people, possibly teenage girls, and not involved in the damage are seen to walk on the opposite side of the road.”


The man is about 5’ 9 to 6’ tall, slim to medium build wearing trousers and a hooded top which concealed his face.


PC Davies concluded, “I am particularly eager to identify the group walking opposite the car when the damage occurred, they were not involved in the incident but could hold vital information which will help me identify the person responsible for this totally pointless act of criminal damage.  In fact I would like to hear from anyone who has any information about this incident to contact Police on 101”


Anyone who has any information should contact PC Davies on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 and quote reference RM12181239.
