Police are appealing for witnesses to the damage of two vehicles, which took place between 12pm and 1pm on Saturday.
The vehicles were parked in the car park of the Tesco store in Douglas.
A police spokesman said: ‘At this stage the damage appears to be consistent with a vehicle either trying to enter or leave a parking space next to the two damaged vehicles.
‘The offending vehicle involved is believed to have been red in colour and it is thought that the incident may have been loud enough to alert anyone who may have been in the vicinity.’
Constable Aaron Mason is investigating the matter. He wants to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who has any information that may assist the investigation.
Constable Mason is based in Lord Street police station, Douglas. Telephone 631212.
