A pavement parking vigilante has again taken the law into their own hands after returning to a street in Whitstable.
Five cars, which were all parked on the pavement in Badlesmere Road, Tankerton, have been scratched or keyed by a vandal.
Police are now connecting the two incidents and are appealing for witnesses.
Sergeant Nick Barton from the Canterbury Community Safety Unit said: “We are linking the latest offences to the ones in October and are appealing for anyone who saw someone acting suspiciously in the road or who has information about the incidents to contact us.”
Officers have received four reports relating to five vehicles - a Vauxhall Tiguan, a VW Scirocco, a VW Passat, a Ford Focus and a Kia Sorento.
The cars were targeted between Wednesday, January 18 and Friday, January 20.
Sergeant Barton said: “If people are worried about parking on pavements in their area they should use the proper channels, such as their local authority, to report their concerns.
“Taking the law into their own hands is not acceptable and they should be aware that damaging someone’s car is a criminal offence that potentially carries a prison sentence.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 01843 222289 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting crime number ZY/2504/17.
