Police hunt serial tyre-slasher in Newcastle

Police are hunting a serial tyre-slasher in Newcastle.

Since May, police say they have received numerous reports of malicious damage to vehicles in suburbs such as Mayfield and Tighes Hill.

On each occasion, people have parked their cars at various locations and have returned to find the tyres punctured.


Investigators believe the incidents are random and have released CCTV footage (see it below) of a woman who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The woman in the footage is described as being of a slim build with medium-length hair.

Anyone with any information that could assist police with their investigations is urged to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
