Police are on the hunt for a vandal who has been caught on CCTV cutting a hole in the roof of a convertible car.

Five people tried the handles of the car before the suspect cut a 2ft triangular shape in the top of the vehicle in Undercliffe, St Leonards, Sussex.

The suspects left abruptly from the scene at about 2:30am on 3 December and nothing was stolen.

“Without hesitation the suspect slices the top of the roof, taking the piece completely off.

“We are appealing to anyone who has information on these suspects to come forward immediately.”
