Do you recognise this person? In the video a hooded person rips the wingmirror off a van

A car dealership in Sidcup has released CCTV footage of a man knocking the wingmirror off a van, in the hope the public can help identify the vandal.

Danson Motors Ltd put the video of the incident, in the early hours of May 11, on Facebook with a statement which said: “Still waiting for clearer CCTV images that should be with us soon, but please share this. We want this scumbag to know that we are coming for him, we have people sharing in Welling, Sidcup, Blackfen, Bexleyheath, Bexley and Eltham.

“Police have great fingerprints and like us are waiting for the clearer CCTV. Thanks in advance for your help.”

The video shows a hooded person attempting to rip the wingmirrors of two BMWs, and then returning, when unsuccessful, with a large pole which they use to take a wingmirror off a van.

Bob Pick, from Danson Motors, who posted the video, said: “It wasn’t just that van that was damaged, there was also damaged caused to one Citroen, one Ford, and a Volkswagen. But we have been lucky, that actually the damage will only cost around £1,000 to repair. Still that makes us £1,000 down in money.

“We have a stong suspicion as to who committed the crime, and we are currently waiting for CCTV to come back from the shop across the road, and the compnay which run the bus he got off of beforehand. Because it was so early in the morning, the bus company are looking at their last two buses running because they think that he’ll probably have been the only person on the bus at that time, so we’ll get a clear image.

“All I really want to know from the person who did it, is why? Why would you do that? And why after you didn’t succeed the first time, did you feel the need to come back again?

“And to the public, please come forward if you think you recognise this person, or the way they dress. Myself and Jas Manku, Danson Motors’ owner, would really like to find the person who did this. Thank you so much for your support, it’s greatly appreciated.”
