Cars belonging to elderly and disabled residents were splattered with paint after a parking row.

A “petrified” 93-year-old is among those who now feel unsafe after the argument in New Road, near Croxley Green Station, on Tuesday evening (May 14).

Residents say a BMW driver was asked not to park outside their flats – an area reserved for them and their visitors – following which he became “aggressive” and booted rubbish around the car park.

Having sped off at around 6.30pm, he returned at 10.45pm and lobbed paint over five tenants’ vehicles and the main building door.

One of the victims, 82-year-old Stanley Long, told the Watford Observer: “I feel unsafe because being a pensioner I can’t protect myself anymore. I look after a little old lady upstairs, she’s 93 and she’s petrified.

“Surely we must feel safe in our own homes. We’re in England not in the middle of a warzone.”

The former soldier, who has lived in Croxley Green for 15 years, said most of the block’s residents are elderly and around half are disabled.

Herts Police and site owner Thrive Homes have been told.

“I would like it resolved for the poor little old lady,” Mr Long added. “I know I’ve had it done to my car, and I’ve been and had some work done on it already.

“But we’ve got two women here – one really badly disabled, the other one has gone to work in one of her friend’s cars. It’s not fair on them.”

In a social media post, one person said the suspect “persistently parks his car in a private tenants’ car park and uses the Croxley station”.

This time a note had been left on his vehicle telling him not to park there, as he had previously been aggressive when told in person.

Contributors online branded the incident “appalling” and “nasty”, with one urging police to check train CCTV footage to identify him.

The suspect is described as a white man around 6ft 2ins tall, with blonde hair, aged around 40 and wearing an olive green top. His car was reportedly a silver BMW 6 Series with black wheels.

Herts Police confirmed they are investigating “criminal damage” which involved white paint being thrown on vehicles and a communal door to flats.

Anyone with information has been asked to report it online or via non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 41/38223/24.
