A couple and their 18-month-old baby escaped unharmed after a rock was thrown at their car as they travelled through Peterborough.

The couple were in their Mini Cooper driving along Brimbles Way on Saturday (February 28) at around 6.35pm when the incident happened.

Thankfully no one was hurt but it was a terrifying ordeal for the family who were travelling with their 18-month-old son.

As they drove under a footbridge a rock dropped onto the car, smashing the windscreen.

Det Sgt Liam Sweeney said: “Thankfully no one was hurt but it was a terrifying ordeal for the family who were travelling with their 18-month-old son.

“This reckless behaviour could have had much more serious consequences and I would urge anyone who has information about this incident to contact police.

“A group of young people were on the footpath at the time of the incident and it is likely they saw who is responsible.

“I would ask that anyone in that group who has information contacts police.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
