Moment machete-wielding man smashes several cars along a road in Manchester
This is the moment a man is captured swinging a ‘machete’ at two cars in Manchester.
The footage, which was captured on a CCTV camera on Nuthurst Road in New Moston, shows a man hitting the wing mirror of a Range Rover and a Volkswagen Polo while walking along the road.
Greater Manchester Police have said they are investigating the incident.
The owner of one of the cars shared the footage with Manchester Evening News, hoping that the incident, which happened three weeks ago, will be taken seriously by police.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said her daughter’s car was also vandalised, and that they only realised something was wrong when they spotted blood on one of the windscreens, prompting them to check their CCTV.
‘You can clearly see how big that machete is,’ she told Manchester Evening News.
‘Someone had put on Facebook that same day that someone was doing the same in Failsworth so he could have walked all that way.’
She added that she has been left with up to £300 of repairs, while her daughter faces forking out £400 to fix the damage.
It’s the second incident the family have faced in the past three months, after two of their cars were broken into earlier this year.
The man is first spotted walking down the road past the home where the family lives
