POLICE have appealed for a motorcyclist to come forward after at least eight vehicles parked in a Lowestoft street were damaged.
Officers investigating after the vehicles parked in Harris Avenue were damaged overnight on Friday and Saturday (July 6/7) are appealing for a motorcyclist, who was seen pulling up at a bus stop in the road about 2am to 2.30am on Saturday, to come forward.
A police spokesman said: “House to house inquiries by police revealed a motorcyclist had pulled up at the bus stop, got off the bike and walked up the road and back again before getting back on the bike and riding off. The rider appears to have been wearing a light coloured helmet, a dark jacket and light coloured trousers.”
All eight vehicles – a red Peugeot, a blue Peugeot, a silver Toyota, a blue Renault, a silver Kia, two blue Vauxhalls and a silver Ford - had their paintwork scratched, in many cases along the side of the vehicle and on the bonnet of the cars.
The spokesman added: “Police need to trace this motorcyclist and are asking the rider, or anyone with information about who they are, to come forward.” Officers are also renewing appeals for anyone with information about the incidents to call the Lowestoft North Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
