At least eight vehicles in the Esplanade and South Street area have been scratched as part of a spate of vandal attacks.
PC Craig Regan, of Scarborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time and ask them to contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as possible. “I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who has CCTV covering the Esplanade, South Street or any of the streets leading off them which may have caught the offenders on camera.”
The damage occurred overnight between Wednesday, August 15, and Thursday, August 16.
• Anyone who can help with the investigation is asked to either contact Scarborough Police on 101, press option two and ask for Chris Regan or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
