Police are hunting for vandals who scratched what they describe as an ‘offensive symbol’ onto a car in York.

At some point in the last four weeks, the damage was done to the driver’s side window of a car in New Earswick.

The vehicle’s owner noticed the damage on 3 January and it is believed this occurred at some point between then and early December.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “We are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and in particular, appealing for anyone who may have information about who is responsible for this damage.

“We’re also asking that New Earswick residents remain vigilant for any suspicious activity and report anything of concern to the police.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police – see below.
