Car owner David Williams, 25, had his prized BMW 2 Series scratched between 2.40pm and 3.30pm on Bank Holiday Monday.
The builder said: ‘I’d parked my car outside my brother’s house while we had a barbecue.
‘My brother has CCTV which caught this woman scratching cars including mine and my brother’s.
‘It’ll cost me about £200.
‘The scratch is quite deep and I’ve reported it to the police.’
Mother-of-three Sarah McCormack, 45, also caught the same woman on her security cameras repeatedly scratching her black BMW X5 in February.
Police believe it is the same woman who attacked this BMW X5 in February
In total, the woman is believed to have damaged more than 10 cars including this BMW

She said: ‘My husband who is a lorry driver was on a week’s holiday from work and he was refitting the kitchen.
‘He went outside and noticed a scratch from one end of our car to the other.
‘When we looked at our CCTV you can see her scratching the car and then walking back up the road and doing it again.
‘When I came back from work I walked up our road and she had done it to five more cars.
‘I am shocked at such behaviour from a grown woman.
‘I am disgusted we have to work hard for what we have and you don’t expect someone to do this.
‘I believe she should be prosecuted for what she has done to numerous cars and at the end of the day it is criminal damage.’
Another victim, mother-of-one Gemma Nelson, had her Range Rover Evoque ‘T-cut’ by a vandal.
West Midlands Police have confirmed they are investigating the damage.
