An appeal has been launched after a BMW’s rear windscreen was smashed while parked in Royston overnight – with a cyclist believed to have been injured in the crash.
Police are appealing for witnesses after an incident in Poplar Drive which saw a parked BMW 320d’s rear windscreen smashed.
The damage took place at some point between 11pm on Wednesday and 8am yesterday – when the owner returned to the car after parking it in the road the night before.
Officers believe – due to the nature of the damage – that a person riding a bicycle has crashed into the back of the parked BMW and caused the damage.
Det Sgt Sarah Gilbertson, from the North Herts Local Crime Unit, said: “We believe the person riding the bicycle would have been injured following the collision so we would like to make contact with them to ensure they are safe. I would ask anyone who has any information which could help us trace this person to please come forward and speak to us.”
