A Suffolk woman was left in shock after waking up to discover her vehicle was covered in paint.
Natalie Routledge, 30, from Carlton Colville, 'couldn't believe her eyes' after seeing what had happened to her white Porsche during the night.
"We were left confused and shaken as to why we were targeted. It's horrible to think about it," she said.
Ms Routledge managed to remove the paint by using a pressure washer and discovered it to be a water-based paint.
"Unfortunately, it rained last night so any fingerprints would have been washed away quickly."
"We think it was a random attack because we live on a busy road and have a nice car," she added.
Although Ms Routledge does have a home security doorbell which captures movement, it failed to activate. However, a neighbour has come forward with footage of someone running away which she hopes will help.
