A mother has spoken of her horror after vandals used her son’s scooter to smash a window at her home.
Vanessa Neil, 29, had been returning home from work when she discovered the damage at her address on Finlow Terrace.
The mother-of-one said she now feels “very uneasy” at her home in the Fintry area after the incident last Friday night.
Speaking to the Tele, the retail worker said items including the scooter were removed from the veranda before the window in her bedroom was smashed.
Despite yobs kicking over plant pots and damaging the gas box on the veranda she said nothing was stolen during the incident.
She said: “I’ve lived here for eight years and had no bother at all so this was a major shock.
“I’m relived neither me nor my son was in the property when the incident happened.
“The glass was all over my bed when I got in and my son’s scooter was lying at the foot of the window frame outside.”
Vanessa said her neighbours had heard banging prior to the incident.
She added: “When the glass smashed I think the neighbours had assumed the banging noise was coming from a neighbouring property.
“The items had been taken off my veranda.
“The plant pots had been kicked over and they’d also damaged my gas box which could have been dangerous.
“When someone from the gas company came to repair the damage he was shocked at the extent of the damage.
“The window still has the boarding over it at the moment .
“My neighbours hadn’t seen anyone at the scene so I believe there has maybe just been one person on a wrecking spree.
“I hadn’t realised the gas box was damaged until the Saturday morning.
“The whole incident has left me feeling very uneasy in my home.
“I walked around the property and nothing was taken during the incident.”
A spokesman for the force said: “Police Scotland is investigating vandalism to a window which happened at a ground floor flat in Finlow Terrace, Dundee, sometime between 9.30pm-10pm on Friday March 16.
“If you have any information about this incident which could assist our inquiries, please call 101.
