Appeal for witnesses after brick thrown at car

Police are appealing for witnesses after what they described as the “reckless actions” of those responsible for throwing a brick at a car in Glenrothes.

The incident, which happened at around 5.00 p.m. yesterday, involved involved a black Ford Fiesta that was on Kinglassie Road, travelling from Bankhead roundabout towards Stenton when the object was dropped from the footbridge that runs over the dual carriageway.

The brick struck the windscreen and bonnet, forcing the car to stop.

Officers have confirmed no one was injured but are keen to trace three male youths, thought to be in their mid-late teens, who were seen on the bridge at the time.

Constable Susan Todd said: “This was an incredibly dangerous thing for a person to do which showed utter disregard for the consequences.

“We have seen incidents similar to this in other parts of the country that have resulted in fatalities so it was lucky that the driver managed to keep his car on the road and not crash given the fright that he must have got.

“I would urge any person who saw any person on the footbridge or running away from it into the Stenton area or prior to that, at the Glamis end of the bridge, to contact Police Scotland at a police station or by phoning 101 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0845 555 111.”
