YOBS have gone on the rampage in Marsden, slashing the tyres of more than 30 cars.
Drivers in the village awoke to find their tyres had been attacked. Many could not get to work.
The worst hit area was Brougham Road where 18 cars were targeted.
Chris Hall, 44, who runs Octopus Home Improvements from his home in Brougham Road, had the tyres on his car and van punctured.
He said: "I heard my neighbour outside and went to see what the problem was. He told me his tyres had been slashed. When I looked, the same had happened to my car and van and other cars right down the road.
"When we got talking to other people we found out that cars all over Marsden had been attacked."
Cars were randomly attacked using a knife or sharp object. The total cost of replacing all the tyres will be thousands of pounds.
Mr Hall said: "It is not just that we have had to spend money to get the tyres replaced.
"People are really worried that there was someone wandering around Marsden with what must have been a quite substantial weapon.
"Tyres are tough and not easy to puncture like this.
"I rang the police as soon as I found out but we have not heard anything from them. I am not having a go at the police - I am sure they are investigating - but it would have been nice to see someone up here or have been told what is going on.
"People needed a bit of reassurance from them and they have not been given any at all."
A Huddersfield Police spokesman said: "We had reports of damage to a number of vehicles including tyres being slashed.
"Investigations are under way to find out what happened and find the culprits."
A CCTV camera positioned in Brougham Road caught on film what Mr Hall believes are the culprits at 1.56am.
A spokeswoman for the company said: "What appears to be two young males pass by the camera but it is very difficult to properly identify them from the picture.
"Some of the lights at the front of the building were actually out at the time so the area was not illuminated as it normally is, which also makes it harder to see the pair."
A still copy of the footage has been made available to the police.
