Police are looking to speak to four youths after dozens of cars were damaged during an overnight spate in Horsham.

Police said 20 vehicles were scratched in Oakhill Road, Elm Grove and Bennetts Road overnight on Saturday February 13.

A ‘sharp object’ was used to scratch the sides of the vehicles, officers added.

PC Jon Walker said: “We’re appealing for witnesses to contact us on or call 101, quoting serial 618 of 14/02.

“We are also trying to trace four male youths who were seen walking up Bennetts Road, towards Comptons Lane, at about 7pm that night.

“The same youths were then seen coming back down the same road eight minutes later.”
