A 33-year-old man from Peterborough was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage to property valued under £5,000.

A video of the incident, which the Peterborough Telegraph is unable to publish at this time due to the police investigation, shows a man walking along the street fully naked punching a number of car windows with his bare hands.

Damage was caused to a silver Nissan Micra and a red Audi as well as a Mercedes parked in the street.

The video shows residents restraining the man until the police arrive to prevent further damage.
