Vandals went on a wrecking spree at a popular tourist spot in Harborough, smashing rear windscreens on five cars.
It happened at the upper car park off Gumley Road at Foxton Locks some time between 11am and 2.30pm on Wednesday, October 9.
The information was released by police yesterday afternoon (Friday, October 25).
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Matt Houghton, of Harborough police, said: “We’re eager to trace the people responsible for these incidents as they have caused upset to the owners of the cars as well as the inconvenience and cost to repair the damage.
“Do you have any information about who may have done this? If so, please get in touch. We would like to hear about any unusual or suspicious activity in the area or any groups hanging around cars between these times.
“We would also urge anyone who has also been a victim of this type of incident in the area and has not as yet reported it to the police, to get in touch as soon as possible.
“Thankfully it doesn’t appear anything was stolen from the vehicles but we would like to remind motorists of the importance of making sure they do not leave any valuables visible in the car and where possible take all property with you.”
Anyone with any information about the incidents is asked to contact PCSO 6109 Matt Houghton on 101, follow the instructions to leave a message for a police officer and when prompted key in the officer’s identification number 6109.
