The owner of a Mercedes has been left with a hefty bill after thugs damaged the car overnight in what appears to be a case of mistake identity.
The incident occurred earlier this morning (Saturday) in St George’s Road, Shanklin.
According to the owner, who has spoken to local residents, 2 unknown males made references to finding ‘Sam’s car’ and that they were going to cause criminal damage to the vehicle.
Dave, the car’s rightful owner, believes that the duo simply identified the wrong car, which has left him with a repair bill through no fault his own.
The rear windscreen has been smashed in.
The incident has been reported to the Police, who are said to have already closed the case.
