CCTV Of Tyre Slasher Released

Wednesday March 19 2014



A FURIOUS family from Jump has released CCTV they captured that shows a vandal slashing their car tyres.

Peter Holling has CCTV installed outside his home on Allott Crescent which captured the vandal coming onto the front of their property and slashing all four tyres on the family car, causing over £200 worth of damage.

It happened at around 2.15am on Tuesday morning and follows a spate of similar incidents in the Hoyland and Blacker Hill area.

Cars and vans on Green Street, Barber Street, Stead Lane, West Street, Greenside and Elm Street in Hoyland have also been targeted.

Anyone with information should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101. Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Good luck I hope you find the person I had my car keyed it cost £1500 to repair I had CCTV n the lad who did it with the clothes that he was wearing etc... & he managed to get away with it even tho he had been charged with doing the same to someone else... They should be made to pay the full amount & compensation !

What on earth is wrong with some peoples heads? It makes my blood boil these people who think they can just go round touching n vandalising what is not theirs. How brazenly he just walks in to their drive even with flood light and just slashes the tyres. It was a flood light right?

Someone has to know who is doing this!! Going round at 2.40 am in the morning and vandalising ppl property is not a normal thing to be doing! . By the looks of the person doing it,they are not kids just looking for summation to do! They know what they are doing!. We're is the nearest garage in hoyland/blacker hill? Could this person be someone who is looking for more business and that's why this is happening? Just a thought!

Should go old school and cut the persons hands off with the knife he used, cos police and justice system would release him back into society

Louise -Challenger Tyres and Exhausts near the jet garage is a local one, also ran by thugs and 'nasty nick' who threatened my partner once because he complained about them charging us for parts we didn't even ask for. So it wouldn't surprise me if they had any involvement with all this!!

He walks in a distinct manner, someone should be able to finger him.??? Pity there aren't any police patrols anymore, this type of crime would drop if there was any likelihood of being caught !!!

Challenger are rip off merchant's I had 2 tyres on and they damaged my wheels.cost me £400 Blamed the damage on poor refurbishment. Load of crap. Ive worked on cars for 20 years all they are after is your money. The young lad has a bad attitude and is a clever €₩@t . I will never use them again.
