A terrified mother-of-two said she and her two autistic sons were left “on the sidelines” after their home was mistakenly attacked in an attack.
The woman, whose name was not released, claims two hooded youths approached her property on Almond Tree Avenue in Coventry around 10.30pm last Wednesday and began hurling eggs at their windows.
A few minutes later, after hearing what sounded like someone being shot, she found that the rear window of her car had been shattered by a brick.
It is said to have caused both emotional and financial distress for the victim as the damaged car was a spare car that she used while her own vehicle was being repaired.
she said CoventryLive : “A neighbor came down, heard the noise, thought someone had been shot. At first I thought it was just eggs thrown at the house, then I realized my car was damaged.”
Discussing the emotional impact the random attack had on her family, the victim said: “I live alone with my two autistic boys, one just turned 21 and the egg hit his bedroom window. He’s very nervous.”
She believes her home was unfairly attacked, saying, “I think it could be a wrong address for a targeted attack as we rarely go out or interact with local people – let’s keep to ourselves.”
A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “We have received a report of criminal damage after a brick was thrown at a car in Almond Tree Avenue, Coventry, at 10.20pm on Wednesday (April 13).
“Anyone with information can contact us via live chat on our website and quote the number 20/380617/22.”
