It’s believed the woman responsible for slashing car tyres in Newcastle’s inner suburbs has now destroyed more than 100.

Detectives say she’s been targeting cars in the Mayfield, Islington and Tighes Hill areas since May, leaving an estimated damage bill of well over 10-thousand dollars.

She first started slashing tyres at night time but has recently been active during the day, attacking cars parked on the street, in driveways and in car parks.

Detectives have released a new image of the woman they believe is responsible for the vandalism spree.
