Police in Dorchester are investigating after cars were vandalised in several streets on the same night.
Officers are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after the criminal damage.
The five separate incidents happened between 1am and 2.30am on Saturday 29 June on Princes Street, West Walks Road, Louise Road, and two along Maud Road.
In each individual case the windows of the cars were smashed, and it appears whoever is responsible has used some sort of weapon to do so.
Police Constable Michael Brown, of the Dorchester Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:
"I am appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to contact Dorset Police in confidence.
"These thoughtless acts have taken place along a number of quiet residential streets in the early hours of the morning, but there is a possibility that there may be witnesses who saw someone acting suspiciously in the area either prior to, or during the times all five incidents took place.
"This criminal damage has no doubt caused the victims great inconvenience and expense, and I am keen to find those responsible."
No arrests have been made.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 29:170. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
