Police hunt trio responsible for kicking wing mirrors off up to 30 vehicles

Police in north west London are appealing for help in tracing three men who who were caught on camera kicking wing mirrors off at least 15 vehicles in an early morning spree of vandalism.

CCTV footage has been released of the suspects who struck in the area of Harrow Road, Wembley. Although 15 crimes have been officially reported, officers believed more than 30 vehicles may have been affected. Officers were called to the area after a resident reported seeing the men attack various vehicles.

Police attended and searched the area but the men could not be traced. Further enquiries revealed around 15 vehicles had been damaged. Their wing mirrors had been either entirely kicked off or the glass and casings cracked. Residents in the area have since reported seeing several more cars damaged.

Officers believe the owners may not have reported the matter to police, assuming they had been the victim of a road traffic collision rather than vandalism. The suspects are described as white men, aged in their late teens or early 20s and slim. One was wearing a dark puffa-style jacket, what appeared to be grey tracksuit bottoms with white vertical stripes and was carrying a black messenger bag.
