A car going through Hitchin was dented and scratched when an object, thought to be a rock, was thrown at it under a railway bridge – and police have today released a photograph of a man they would like to speak to.
The black Ford Focus was hit while being driven under the railway bridge by the junction of Cambridge Road and Nightingale Road at about 9.25am on Saturday, November 12, travelling towards Letchworth.
The vandal made off towards Hitchin railway station, leaving the car with a large dent and several scratches.
Officers believe the man pictured, wearing an Arsenal football scarf, may have information that could assist their enquiries.
PC William Cox, who is investigating, said: “We have exhausted all other lines of enquiry and are now appealing to the public for their help.
