Police are investigating after a number of vehicles were damaged on a single night in Patchway last week.

Seven vehicles were damaged, including windows being smashed and tyres slashed, in Durban Road, Southsea Road, Rodway Road, Chessel Drive, Severn Way and Pretoria Road.

The incidents happened overnight on Thursday 22nd into Friday 23rd June 2023.

Police say they’re treating the incidents as potentially linked, and it’s possible that in one of the incidents the offenders filmed the damage being caused.


Officers within the neighbourhood policing team are carrying out additional patrols of the area to reassure residents and deter any further offences.

A police spokesperson said:

“If you saw or heard anything which could help our investigation, or if you have any doorbell or dashcam footage from these areas at the time the offences were committed which could help us, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5223148205.”
