New Derby mum scared in own home as vandals target family cars

A Derby mum has revealed how she broke down in tears when she found out yobs had targeted her family for the second time in four days.

Last week Derbyshire Live reported how Tuybia Rehman appealed to the public for information after a thug smashed her husband’s BMW rear window with a brick in the middle of the night.

The incident, which was caught on CCTV, happened outside her Dairy House Road home in Normanton just before 4am on Monday, August 24 with police investigating the circumstances.

But the 35-year-old, who is the mother to an eight-month-old baby, has revealed she suffered more upset when the windscreen of her Vauxhall Astra was smashed in when parked overnight in neighbouring Holcombe Street.

This happened just days afterwards the first violent incident.

The latest act of vandalism is believed to have happened in the early hours of Thursday, August 27, and has been reported to Derbyshire police.

Tuybia told Derbyshire Live she has become anxious at night time and now feels unsafe in her own home.

“My sister-in-law came back to the house on Thursday morning and said something wasn’t right with the car.

“I went out to check and as soon as I saw it I broke down. I was so distraught that I couldn’t make it to work.

“I don’t feel safe and I’m scared about what is going to happen next. I have a baby that is just eight- months-old.

“These people need to be found, please help. Justice needs to be served.”

Tuybia is urging the people to come forward with information.

She added: “We still require help identifying the criminal who attacked my husband’s car outside our home. I strongly believe both attacks are linked and are planned but I still have no idea why someone would stoop as low and do this.

“My husband avoids conflict and has lived in the same property for 38 years, he has not faced this issue before.”
