Police are treating the incident as racially motivated after a rock was thrown through the window of the property in Malpas.

Officers are appealing for information about the attack that happened at around 1.15am on Saturday July 4 in Carew Pole Close.

The tyres of a white Audi car parked nearby, were slashed and its bodywork scratched at around the same time.

Police would like to hear from anyone who has CCTV or dashcam footage of the Malpas area around the time of the incident.

“This was a targeted attack and a frightening incident for the victim, particularly because it happened in the middle of the night.

“As part of our investigation, officers have conducted door-to-door enquiries, reviewed CCTV footage and social media posts, conducted forensic work, and have facilitated the installation of an alarm for the victim.

“We would like anyone who thinks they may have any information about this attack to get in touch with us.

“Racial hatred will not be tolerated. Anyone who believes they are being targeted, or feels threatened, should report incidents directly to us. 

“Those who perpetrate racial hatred on social media should be aware that this will not be tolerated either, and anyone who is the victim of such abuse should contact us.”

Investigating officer, Sergeant Marc Sayers

Anyone with any information about this incident which could assist police enquiries is asked to contact police on 101 or via email at 101@dc.police.uk quoting crime reference, CR/053325/20.

Alternatively, information can be reported anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
