A CWMBRAN man has spoken out about the moment he believes his car was ‘shot’ at while he was driving.

The car Kevin Wall was travelling in, driven by his son-in-law, was driving out of Rhymney Court in the Thornhill area of Cwmbran when they heard a loud bang - from what he believes was an air rifle.

He said: “I heard a big bang. We had no idea what was going on. 

“We stopped the car and saw the people looking at the back window.

“When I saw the damage to the car I jumped out.”

In a video, shared on Facebook, Mr Wall he says he believes back window was shattered by an air rifle.

Mr Wall works in pest control and says he deals with firearms himself through his work.

“I shoot myself, air rifles and shotguns, and I would know the sound of one, so I know the car was shot,” he added.

“It is my son-in-law’s car and he has a baby that is just a couple of weeks old. 

“Luckily there were no children in the car at the time, but that window is where the baby seat is in the back.”

Mr Wall also said he had heard over similar incidents in the area before.
Adding he believes people are at risk, he said: “I have heard a lot of things have been people say they have had their windows shot at.

“I’m worried about my children and grandchildren.”

A Gwent Police spokeswoman said police attended the scene after they were called about the incident. 

She said: “At 8.10am on Wednesday April 19, we received a report of criminal damage to a car in Rhymney Court in Thornhill.

“We are investigating this and anyone with information is asked to call us on 101 quoting log number 125 19/4/17.”
