Cops hunt woman in devil mask ‘pouring ACID over cars and posting porn in Gloucestershire village’

COPS are hunting a woman who donned a devil mask and black curly-haired wig before throwing acid over cars in a tiny Gloucestershire village.

Six cars are believed to have been targeted in the disturbing string of attacks, with one even caught on CCTV outside on for the homes in St Briavels, Forest of Dean, Glos.

SWNS:South West News Service3 John Hurley, 73, had his car targeted in one of the terrifying attacks in the small town of St Briavels, Forest of Dean

Police are now searching for the culprit after finding a mask and wig later found abandoned in the town of barely 1,000.

And bizarrely, the woman is suspected to have posted porn material through letterboxes during the attacks over 18 months.

John Hurley, a semi-retired music teacher, is the latest victim after his Renault Megane Scenic was so badly damaged it could be a write-off.

The gel-like acid stripped its paint back to bare metal, melting the plastic wipers and headlamps.

A plastic spatula used to scrape it off also melted. John, 73, said: "Luckily I was aware of the previous attacks so as soon as I saw it I knew straight away what it was.

"If I hadn't known and touched it, it would have been disastrous. I teach music and the acid would have damaged my fingers.

"It's devastating to think there are people in our community who could do such a thing."

Tens of thousands of pounds of damage were caused to to five cars and a motorhome, with fears the crimes could have sparked copycat attackers.

CAUGHT ON CAMERA

One victim managed to catch two suspects on CCTV.

The person, who did not want to be named, said: "Our home security cameras showed at least two people involved in the attack on our vehicle and property.

"The pair pulled up in a vehicle.

"One was a stout bald middle-aged man wearing glasses, accompanied by a tallish middle-aged woman who was wearing a devil's mask, black curly wig, a poncho and boots with a distinctive thick white sole, who proceeded to throw acid all over our black Freelander.

"A wig and devil's mask matching the security footage was later recovered along with an acid bottle cap, which was handed to the police scenes of crime investigators."

Another resident captured CCTV of a young man wearing a hoodie and scarf who threw acid over their vehicle.
