HOOLIGANS shot at a man's car in Golcar.
They are thought to have used an air weapon to hit the car in Scar Lane yesterday afternoon.
Now police have condemned the actions of the yobs and appealed for people to help catch them.
The victim was Denis Moore, who had parked his car at Scar Lane while at work.
He said: "I got into the car at 3.30pm and was about to drive off when I heard a pop and saw a hole appear in the rear window.
"I knew it could not be a stone thrown up by a passing car and there was no traffic on the road, and the hole was perfectly round.
"It was very lucky that I was not moving at the time and that it hit the rear window and not the front, as the pellet could have hit me."
Pc Dave McSweeney, of Huddersfield police, said: "This was a stupid, dangerous prank that could have had very serious consequences.
"The use of airguns in this way is completely irresponsible.
"I would urge any parents who know their children have such weapons to ensure they use them safely".
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Huddersfield police.
