Moment machete-wielding man smashes several cars along a road in Manchester – leaving owners facing hundreds of pounds worth of repair bills
- The video filmed in New Moston shows a man hitting two cars with a ‘machete’
- The victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, said it’s ‘frightening’ that no one spotted the man walking ‘for nearly one to two miles’ with a weapon in hand
- Greater Manchester Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident
This is the moment a man is captured swinging a ‘machete’ at two cars in Manchester.
The footage, which was captured on a CCTV camera on Nuthurst Road in New Moston, shows a man hitting the wing mirror of a Range Rover and a Volkswagen Polo while walking along the road.
Greater Manchester Police have said they are investigating the incident.
The owner of one of the cars shared the footage with Manchester Evening News, hoping that the incident, which happened three weeks ago, will be taken seriously by police.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said her daughter’s car was also vandalised, and that they only realised something was wrong when they spotted blood on one of the windscreens, prompting them to check their CCTV.
‘You can clearly see how big that machete is,’ she told Manchester Evening News.
‘Someone had put on Facebook that same day that someone was doing the same in Failsworth so he could have walked all that way.’
She added that she has been left with up to £300 of repairs, while her daughter faces forking out £400 to fix the damage.
It’s the second incident the family have faced in the past three months, after two of their cars were broken into earlier this year.
The man is first spotted walking down the road past the home where the family lives

‘We work hard for the things that we’ve got it’s just frightening to know that that person is walking nearly a mile or two miles with a machete and no-one has seen him,’ she added.
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police confirmed that they are investigating.
‘Officers received a report on 4 September 2021 that a man had damaged a vehicle with a bladed article on Nuthurst Road, New Moston, sometime in the previous week,’ a spokesperson said.
‘Officers are reviewing CCTV. No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.’
