Police appeal after car’s tyres are slashed

Police investigating a report of criminal damage and a public order offence in Plymouth have issued an appeal for witnesses.

Officers would like to hear from anyone with information after a blue Vauxhall Corsa had all four of its tyres slashed with a knife on Wednesday 21 August.

The vehicle was allegedly blocked in by a black Vauxhall Astra between 6pm and 6.30pm at the junction of Wantage Gardens and North Road West.

The female driver of the Corsa was then said to have been threatened by a woman who exited the Astra. 

Police are also investigating reports the victim was targeted by the same suspect earlier in the day on 21 August.

It is alleged that, at around 4.30pm, the driver of the Astra approached the stationary blue Corsa on Derry’s Cross roundabout, struck the vehicle with her fists and shouted abuse at the victim.  

It is further alleged the Astra then followed the Corsa and rammed into the rear of the vehicle in Buckwell Street.

Police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage of the incidents, which occurred on busy roads.

A 36-year-old local woman has been attested on suspicion of criminal damage and harassment and has been released under police investigation. 

Anyone who has information is urged to contact police by calling 101, or emailing, quoting crime references CR/075768/19.
