Fireworks have been thrown at people, horses and dogs in a spate of drive-by attacks over just a few days.
Police are looking into five separate incidents in the West Kingsdown area involving a grey or dark coloured Mini Cooper over a six day period.
The first happened at around 9am on Friday, November 6 when the driver of a Mini allegedly threw a firework at a dustcart in Church Road after his vehicle was unable pass.
Two days later, at around 2.40pm, officers received reports that fireworks were thrown from a Mini travelling in Green Street Green Road, Darenth, towards a horse rider, and 20 minutes later in Gallows Wood in the direction of a cyclist.
At 2pm on Tuesday, November 10, a dog walker in Fawkham Road reported they had been targeted with a firework from a Mini. The following day at around the same time, another horse rider alleged a firework had been directed at them from a similar vehicle in Exedown Road, Sevenoaks.
Inspector Lizzie Jones, of the Tonbridge and Malling Community Safety Unit, said: "It is only by chance that nobody has suffered serious injuries in these incidents.
"We are linking the reports and, while investigators are making inquiries to identify those involved, we are appealing for anybody with information that may assist the investigation to contact the appeal line.
"In particular, we are asking drivers with dash cam and residents with doorbell cameras and other CCTV security systems to check footage that may show a grey or dark coloured Mini Cooper in the area at the times of the incidents."
Anyone with information should call police on 01622 604100 quoting 46/202049/20.
