Radford College students’ car tyres slashed


Six Radford College students had their car tyres slashed by an unknown vandal on Thursday.

Police confirmed six cars belonging to students received tyre damage while parked on Baudinette Circuit in Bruce.

An ACT Policing spokeswoman said it was not believed the students were targeted.

A Radford spokesman said: “A small number of our students had their tyres slashed.

“All vehicles were legally parked. The matter has been referred to police and anyone with information is asked to contact them.”

One furious mum wrote on Facebook her daughter “did nothing to deserve the damage that was done to the car”.

“The guy at Bob Jane told us it looked like most of the tyres were deliberately slashed in such a way that they could not be repaired and the replacement tyre cost us $250,” she said.

“The school were amazing and went out of their way to assist the kids affected in getting them back on the road.”

Canberrans¬†suffered years of tyre terrorism at the hands of the “Narrabundah slasher”, also known as the “grim reaper of rubber” and the “blowout bandit”.

The unknown vandal formed part of a political campaign with Canberra Liberal MLA Giulia Jones urging CCTV for under-siege vehicles in affected suburbs in Canberra’s south.

A man was arrested in June 2014 for allegedly damaging a tyre but further incidents were recorded in October.

Residents then told Fairfax Media south Canberra slashing incidents were known to stop completely for a few months, only to begin again without warning.

Police have urged anyone with information on the Bruce incident on the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website, quoting reference 6154629.
