A single mum from Stevenage awoke to find her car stripped of its paintwork, after it had “an unknown substance” thrown over it last night.
The mum, who didn’t want to be named, answered her door – in Ferrier Road in Chells – to her neighbour at 9am this morning, after he saw the Lexus RX300 had been targeted.
She told the Comet: “I couldn’t believe it. He said that acid had been thrown onto the car, completely writing it off.”
“I’m a single parent – I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
Police are investigating the incident. A force spokeswoman said: “Between 6.30pm yesterday and 9am today, an unknown substance was poured onto the vehicle, causing the paint to strip off.”
Anyone with information about the incident should contact police on 101, quoting crime reference E1/18/2857.
