Man charged after cars destroyed by “acid-like” substance at Sydney Uni

A bus driver has been charged over multiple alleged acid attacks on cars at a university and shopping centre in Sydney’s north-west.

Police say the vehicles, including luxury cars, had an acid-like substance applied to them whilst they were parked at a shopping centre and university in Ryde between February and June this year.

Following investigations, officers arrested a 53-year-old man at a home in Ryde on Friday 4 August.


He was taken to Ryde Police Station where he was charged with 16 counts of malicious damage to property.

The man, who police say is a bus driver, was given strict conditional bail to appear at Burwood Local Court on 21 August.
