Scarborough police made an appeal on Friday for information regarding a number of tyres that were vandalised on April 26.

It is understood about 8.30pm a man punctured the front tyre of a car on Sackville Terrace. His actions were caught on CCTV.

Police said it was believed he may have been responsible for damage to four other vehicles nearby on the same night.

Scarborough Police acting officer-in-charge Cris Marzo said he had been in contact with Fremantle police over a similar spate of tyre-slashing incidents in their area.

“It’s too early to say whether the incidents are linked or whether it is a copycat offence.”

Scores of Fremantle owners awoke on April 24 to find their tyres had been slashed.

At the time police spokeswoman Susan Usher said police were seeking information on tyres damaged on vehicles overnight in South Fremantle between April 23-24.

“Unknown persons have used a sharp implement to puncture the tyres on numerous vehicles located on Attfield Street, South Fremantle,” she said.

“Police are aware of 36 vehicles having two or more tyres damaged at an estimated cost of more than $10,000.”

“We would like to speak to anyone who was in the area during those times who may have witnessed suspicious activity,” Ms Usher said.

The man wanted for questioning over the Scarborough tyre-slashing incident is described as having a tanned complexion, 183cm with a medium build and dark scruffy hair.

He was wearing black pants, a red t-shirt and carrying a white jacket.
