Police are on the hunt for a man who deliberately flooded a house during a vandalism rampage.

After entering the property, the man smashed all the windows and ripped out various fixtures and fittings.

He then ran off when challenged by a neighbour.

The incident happened in Perth’s Tweedsmuir Road at some point between 6.30pm and 7.20pm on Saturday.

The suspect was last seen running down Tummel Road before disappearing on Rannoch Road.

Officers are now working to trace the man, who was wearing a face mask and carrying what may have been a metal pole.

He is believed to be around 5ft 8in, slim, aged between 30 and 40, and was wearing a two-tone grey/dark-grey jacket with a hood up and tracksuit bottoms.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We would particularly like to hear from anyone in the Tweedsmuir Road / Tummel Road / Rannoch Road area who has private CCTV that may have captured footage of this individual.

“He may have also been seen elsewhere in the Letham area, possibly with his hood down and mask removed.”

If you have any information, call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
