Damage to cars in Garthorne?

Can't quite believe that someone would be so stupid, but I've just watched a middle aged guy (jeans, black top) walking down the entire lenght of Garthorne Road from where it meets Ewart down to Ackroyd (where I think he turned into Ackroyd, couldn't see where he went and he was gone before I could e.g. call the police), willfully banging his backpack into every single car on his way, with quite a bit of force and intent (sides of cars mostly, occasionally windows). He seemed drunk or under the influence of substances, staggering from one side of the road to the other and may have been muttering something. I don't think he was intending to break into any of the cars (he'd have needed to use more force and I didn't hear any of the windows break),he just randomly hit them with that backpack. But the backpack must have weighted a good few pounds and he made a lot of noise each time he hit one of the cars, so am wondering if anyone else got woken up by this or saw him? (12.30am) He must have hit at least 20 cars in Garthorne and I'm pretty sure a few will have some sort of damage or broken off mirrors etc. Whilst that is irritating, I'm actually more worried that he did look really disturbed.
