Officers from the British Transport Police have released a CCTV image of a male they would like to trace.
The appeal comes after three cars were damaged at a multi-story car park in Nottingham railway station.
The incident happened overnight between Thursday 2 May and Friday 3 May.
After officers completed an extensive review of CCTV footage, they managed to identify a male who they would like to speak to.
A male is reported to have used an object to severely scratch three cars. The cost of the damage is estimated to be more than £1,300.
It is not known whether the male specifically targeted any individuals in particular, or if the attack was a random one.
Officers believe the man in the images may have information that could help their investigation.
