Police are searching for a tyre-slasher who caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to motorists in Sheepridge.
He struck in the space of a few minutes in the early hours in just one street.
Officers were called at 5.55am on Tuesday to Scott Vale, a cul de sac, where they found 17 vehicles with 68 slashed tyres – four on each car.
It’s unclear what motivated the man to carry out such an attack.
But police are now studying CCTV footage of the incident in a bid to identify him.
One of those affected was Renee Corujo, a 36-year-old mum.
She said: “All four tyres were slashed on our Renault Clio.
“It’s meant my partner, Martin Perez, a chef, has to go to his job in the town centre by bus.”
Also affected was Phil Holme, an unemployed, 36-year-old, who said his father Peter had suffered the best part of £1,000 damage following an attack on his Citreon C4 Picasso.
He said: “My dad captured the attack on CCTV and has given it to the police. It was timed at 2am and 2.10am.
“You can see him looking up and seeing whether anyone is watching him as he does each car.
“He was white, mid-30s and dressed in a two-tone pullover, jeans and trainers.
“I’ve had all the tyres on my silver-coloured Vauxhall Corsa done too
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “If anyone has seen anything suspicious in the early hours of the morning contact Huddersfield Neighbourhood Policing Team.”
