FREMANTLE’S notorious tyre slasher appears to have struck again on the weekend, targeting dozens of cars across the city.

Police have received reports from six streets in Fremantle, South Fremantl ck $750.

“I had only replaced all the tyres on one vehicle last year,” he fumed.

Mr Gaffney says residents along Tuckfield are fed up being targeted by anti-social behaviour following big events in Fremantle or the Arts Centre and want more support from the council, including making their street resident-parking only.

“Given the enthusiasm for CCTV in Fremantle, the city should also consider installing CCTV at the entrance of the street, and the arts centre,” Mr Gaffney said.

But the council reckons there’s no evidence that Tuckfield Street gets more than its fair share of bad behaviour, particularly anything linked to local events.

“If residents are experiencing troubles with anti-social behaviour the city would encourage them to report it to the police,” a spokesperson said.

Police said they don’t have any CCTV images, and have called for anyone with dashcam footage or CCTV that might have captured any suspicious behaviour to come forward and report it to Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
