Vandals have damaged more than half a dozen cars in a Lowestoft street with police searching for the two suspects involved in the crime spree that saw an elderly disabled man's car targeted.
The cars were damaged in Durban Road at about 11pm on Friday with police saying about seven vehicles were targeted.
Lowestoft Police are looking for two males suspected of causing the damage and launched an appeal via social media to try and find them.
A resident, who did not want to be named, said he and his wife's cars both had windows smashed and that an elderly disabled neighbour had seen a registration plate removed and a rear light smashed.
The resident said he had heard the cars' windows being smashed and called 999. He said he had seen two young men in the area at the time and the road had seen anti-social behaviour problems.
