Police investigating a series of arson and criminal damage incidents have released an image of a man they want to identify and speak with.

The crimes took place on several different occasions in Du Cane Road, W12, in May and September this year. A man set fire to a car, someone’s front door and caused criminal damage to people’s property. The tyres of a car were also slashed.

The man is also believed to carry a large rambo style knife in a sheath, which he used to damage the door.

PC Manojh Sivagnanasangar, who is leading the investigation, said: “We would like to speak to this man in connection with a series of criminal activities in Du Cane Road, W12.

“Whilst nobody has been physically injured in these attacks, the victims have understandably been left very shaken as they have been targeted in their homes.

“We believe this man may be known within the community and we are keen to hear from anyone who can help to identify him.

“If you know this man or can provide any information that will help the investigation, I urge you to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CRIS 6025129/23.
